Cape Town - Huisgenoot, in association with kykNET Films, produced the romantic drama, Vir Die Voëls, as part of their centenary celebrations in 2016.  

The movie was inspired by the true story of Irma Humpel (Simoné Nortmann), a surly tomboy who ends up in a wedding dress, in front of the altar, with the boy who relentlessly teased her as a child. She has always believed that independence was the only form of freedom, until Sampie de Klerk (Francois Jacobs) came along and challenged her convictions on all levels. 

Other cast members include Elize Cawood, Nicola Hanekom, Neels van Jaarsveld, Drikus Volschenk, Leandry Smith, Liam Bosman, Lara Kinnear, Candice Kruger and Bennie Fourie.

The film is set to hit cinemas on Friday, 25 November.
