Beyond the River is the nail-biting true story of two men whose quest to win gold connects them on and beyond the river. It is based on the story of Piers Cruikshanks of Dabulamanzi Canoe Club and Siseko Ntondini of the Soweto Canoe and Recreation Club who, against all odds, won gold in the 2014 Dusi Canoe Marathon.
In addition to being a dramatic adventure story about the triumph of the human spirit, the film will feature a host of picturesque locations, such as The Valley of 1000 Hills, Emmarentia Dam and Orlando Dam.
Lemogang Tsipa makes his leading debut as Duma, a young man on the wrong side of the law but with a passion for canoeing. Alongside him is Grant Swanby, a screen legend who also had a role in the Heartlines film, The Miners. Other cast members include Israel Makoe, Emily Child, Mary Twala, Kgosi Mongake and Garth Breytenbach.
