Power couple Siya and Rachel Kolisi are trying their hand at film making.
The Springbok rugby captain and global ambassador for the UN Spotlight Initiative, together with his wife Rachel teamed up to executive produce “We Are Dying Here” – a stage play-turned-short film focusing on gender-based violence (GBV).
The original story belongs to South African writer, performer and director Shiphokazi Jonas, who performed it during the lockdown last year.
It was also mentioned in TimeOut New York as one of the best productions to stream during the lockdown.
In the show, Jonas took a hard look at GBV and performed alongside the co-writers: spoken-word artist Hope Netshivhambe and singer Babalwa Makwetu.
