Her Mask (2020)Watch full movie now
As the lead in Darrell Roodt’s horror Siembamba, Reine Swart was nominated as Best Actress at both the SAFTAs and the Africa Movie Academy Awards, among other festivals. Now she steps into the director’s chair for a horror of her own: Her Mask (aka Heks).
The edge-of-your-seat film is about a grieving British girl who travels to South Africa to unravel her murdered mother’s secrets.
Her Mask stars Mari Molefe van Heerden (7de Laan, Phil 101), Coco Lloyd (X Factor), Hungani Ndlovu (Scandal), Christopher Jaftha (Top Billing, Table Manners), Stephanie Sandows (Isidingo), Mary-Anne Barlow (Legacy), Juanita de Villiers (Getroud Met Rugby), Andre Velts (Knysna) and Christel van den Bergh (Vuil Wasgoed, Konfetti, Getroud Met Rugby).
“We thought about the concept ‘everyone wears a mask’ in 2019,” says Reine. “Little did we know that everyone was literally going to wear masks in 2020.”
The film has been acquired for international distribution by Paris-based sales agents Reel Suspects, who also repped award-winning South African films Nommer 37 and Five Fingers for Marseilles. Additionally, Her Mask has been acquired by Cleopatra Entertainment for a December 2020 release in the US.
