About Groundswell

Groundswell

By Ian Bruce 
Directed by Daniel Gidron    


The lives of three disappointed men intersect with volatile consequences in a sleepy South African port town hotel, when Thami, the gardener and caretaker, and Johan, the odd-job man and former  police officer, conspire to pressure the hotel’s lone guest to invest in their diamond mining scheme.  They soon find themselves in a power struggle fueled by greed and entitlement. This “cross  between David Mamet and Athol Fugard” (The New York Times) is a psychological thriller about desperation and hope, and the glittering promises of the post apartheid society.
