Noem My Skollie

Noem My Skollie

Visit Iziko Museums of South Africa this Saturday, 30 September for our final Heritage Month celebration.

Join the Iziko Education Department for the screening Noem My Skollie – one of the first feature films that uses Afrikaaps for its full duration.

The contemporary positioning of Afrikaaps as a local indigenous language and has gained traction with academics, activists, creatives, and local communities.

“Noem My Skollie”

A film based on the true story of a young man in the 1960’s who saved his life by becoming a storyteller in jail.

“Everyone has a Gift; Every gift has a price”

Young Abraham is arrested for a petty crime and raises his status in prison by captivating the hardened gangsters with his knack for telling stories.

He becomes the “prison cinema” whilst his childhood friend becomes the concubine of the gang boss.

On their release from jail ‘AB’ finds romance and begins a new path in life as a writer but his buddies rope him into the murder of a taxi driver for which they all face the hang-man’s noose.

The film is set in Cape Town, in the 1960’s and is based on the life story of the scriptwriter, John W. Fredericks who wrote the screenplay.

Time: 10:00 am

Venue: TH Barry Lecture Theatre, Iziko South African Museum, 25 Queen Victoria Road Cape Town.

Filmmaker and producer, David Max Brown will introduce the film, and he will be joined by the wife and son of the late author, John W. Fredericks – Quentin and Mrs. Una Fredericks – to engage the audience in a panel format after the film.

The Iziko South African Museum houses exhibitions and collections which relate directly to indigenous social history and therefore has deep relevance to local communities engaged in the public discourse on heritage, identity, and its expression through language.

Standard museum entry fee applies.
