Winterslaap, 29:50 min, B&W, Stereo, South Africa, AFDA, 2022

During a never-ending winter, an old man descends from a mountain into the valley of oblivion. There he stumbles upon two sisters who live amidst ruin and searches for any sign of salvation.

Leandros and Daniel are South African filmmakers. We are both Honours graduates of AFDA  specialising in writing and directing. Our collaboration began with the short film CALF in 2021, which premiered at the DIFF 2022.  Our work focuses on slow, poetic storytelling in a South African context.
