South Africa, 2017. “All this land belongs to one white man. How?” “It’s a farm that Lexi’s family stole generations ago, White people need to give us back our land.” In the comedy-drama ‘High Fantasy’ a group of young friends on a camping trip, deep in the South African countryside wake up to discover they have all swapped bodies.
“I’m not gonna pay the victim and be like I’m sorry, but I am. I’d like to apologize because it was me that brought everyone here.” Their individual cultural heritage and experience of these strange happenings couldn’t be more different; and stranded in the wilderness, they will have to navigate a personal-political labyrinth if their friendship and their lives are ever to be the same again.
“You woke up and you had yourself in somebody else’s body?” “Why the f*ck do you have my body!” The second feature from award-winning South African director Jenna Bass the stage is set for comedy to turn to tragedy, for the fantasy of South Africa’s “Rainbow Nation” to become a painful awakening.
“It’s just a really really f*ucked up thing that happened to a group of people.” With a cast that includes Qondiswa James, Nala Khumalo, Francesca Varrie Michel and Liza Scholtz ‘High Fantasy’ is slated to be released in Canada in September 2017. There is not a U.S. release date, yet.
