South African film notched up another accolade as Anant Singh’s 'Shepherds and Butchers' won an award at The Berlin Film festival on Saturday.

The film, produced by Singh and directed by Oliver Schmitz, was awarded the third place Panorama Audience Award for Fiction Films - a first for a South African Film.
Based on Chris Marnewick's book of the same name, the film revolved around a young warden, arrested after killing seven black members of a karate team, and the jaded lawyer who takes on the murder case.

The film competed in a pool of 51 submissions from 33 countries in the Panorama Section of the festival.
Commenting on the Award, Singh said, “We are overwhelmed by this acknowledgement for our homegrown South African film which competed with the best in the world.  It is a testament to the amazing talent we assembled for the film, and this enabled us to successfully compete in the international arena.”

'Shepherds and Butchers' stars newcomer, Garion Dowds as well as a number of well known South African actors including Deon Lotz, Robert Hobbs, Eduan van Jaarsveldt and Marcel van Heerden alongside  Steve Coogan (‘Philomena’) and Andrea Riseborough (‘Birdman’, ‘Oblivion’).

The film also features the song “Angels”, a collaboration between Barry Gibb, co-founder of the Bee Gees, and Vusi Mahlasela.

We all do feel the same way about most things, but why is it that nobody feels the same way I do about everything? So you're alone. You have that feeling sometimes.
