MARS! is pleased to present GANGSTER BACKSTAGE, a project by artist and director Teboho Edkins.
The protagonists of GANGSTER BACKSTAGE are non-professional actors from Cape Town who answered a call to a casting in a local newspaper: 'looking for actors for a gangster film - experience of gangsterism would be appreciated'. Scenes on an empty stage alternate with intimate interviews. In addition to the film, photographic portraits, taken during the casting process, are on display.
Screening every hour on the hour.
Teboho Edkins lives and works in Berlin and Cape Town.
Edkins‘ films and projects have been presented and awarded internationally. In 2014 he has won the Principal Prize of the International Competition, International Short Film Festival Oberhausen for Gangster Backstage.
Opening: Friday, 27.03.2015, 6 pm
28.03. and 29.03.2015 | 11 am - 5 pm
