Pieter Geldenhuys from Filmfinity (Pty) Ltd, stated, “Stroomop had an exceptional run of 11 weeks on circuit and is up to date the biggest South African film at the box office for 2018.”
This film is about the story five women – Lana (Donnalee Roberts), Vivian (Simoné Nortmann), Adrie (Chanelle de Jager), Diona (Ilse Klink) and Nixie (Carla Klassen) – who are being challenged by life’s rough waters and drowning in their own lives. Coincidence takes them on an adventure on the Orange River. Here the unthinkable happens when their boat capsizes, the river guide goes missing and they find themselves in a battle for survival in the wilderness.
The journey changes their lives as they fight through the pain and fear together.
Armand Aucamp, popular for his roles in Ballade vir ’n Enkeling, Die Boekklub 1 and 2 and Knapsekêrels acts as the river guide, Guy. He is joined by a number of other familiar faces.
To conclude, Ivan Botha and Donnalee Roberts declared, “Stroomop was really one of the biggest adventures of our lives. It is our absolute privilege that the characters and story can now live on in people’s homes. We look forward to sharing this epic and emotional journey on the Orange River with more people. We would like to thank all those who have already supported Stroomop on the big screen and for all the wonderful feedback. We tell stories and make films for the people, so there is nothing more special than receiving someone’s sincere and heartfelt feedback. Relax, sit back and enjoy!”
