Cape Town -  A new trailer for local war film The Recce has just been released. 

The film tells the story of a young recce, who is wrongfully declared dead behind enemy lines and must use every resource he has to get home to his distraught wife and family, who are, in turn fighting their own emotional battles. 

This is also one of the first films in decades to explore issues regarding not only the Border War, but also the pain and suffering families had to endure during and after the conflict that lasted almost 20 years.

Written and directed by Johannes Ferdinand van Zyl, The Recce script came out of his personal connection to the story: “Having grown up with family members that were sent to the Border War, I have a fascination with that era in our history.” 

The cast includes Marius Weyers, Albert Maritz, Greg Kriek, Grant Swanby, Christia Visser, Maurice Carpede (Chappie) and Sonni Chidiebere. 


The film releases in SA on Friday, 28 September.
