My Fathers War 1

In the shoes of a soldier

The cast of the new local war film gets down and dirty with military training.

This Magaliesburg camp is run by consultants who advise the film industry on military matters. Lorna was paired with Stian Bam, the former 7de Laan actor. Done in an easy-going, informative way these exercises were a window into the film’s subject about a veteran of South Africa’s border war and his struggle to relate to his son.

My Fathers War 2

Jokes about their time in basic training before going to the border is about as much as most veterans will share around this troubled time in our history. The stars learned quite a lot on set. Personal experience is key to the film’s plot. It’s only once the son starts having dreams of being in the war with his father that the two begin to relate.

My Fathers War 3

It was as brave a decision for these actors and film-makers to attempt this film as it is to walk down a cliff backwards. The war is highly contentious but the way the writing and directing handles it as a relationship, makes it a human not a political film.
