by Oliver SCHMITZ


Panic, a petty thief living in the slums of Johannesburg, cares little about politics or his brothers’ struggle for their liberation. He prefers to use the money that he steals having a good time… until the day he becomes directly involved in the political fight. Thrown into jail, he has to choose which side he is on

Mapantsula was selected for Un Certain Regard at Cannes in 1988. Oliver Schmitz is known for his films Hijack Stories (2000) and Life, Above All (2010).
