Cape Town – Whilst watching the new local film, Modder en Bloed, we couldn’t help but notice the amazing costumes in the period epic.

Set in 1901 the film follows Willem Morkel, a boer and family man whose wife and son are murdered during the Anglo-Boer War.

Captured as a prisoner of war, Willem must survive incarceration in the notorious St. Helena concentration camp and defeat the ruthless Colonel Swannell, at his own game…rugby.

Dihantus Engelbrecht is the mastermind behind the costumes for this local film. He’s been involved in the costume departments of the film industry for over 22 years and has worked on both local and international features and documentaries.

“I have been blessed to work with many A-listed actors and directors and travelled around the globe enjoying designing in different countries. I am passionate about what I do and love working with people,” Dihantus says about his job.

Take a look at some of the stunning costumes from the film:
