THE South African film industry has now come of age as more and more films win awards internationally.
And now a new film will be flighted on the local screens soon.
Rainbow Skellums is a local film featuring the world's greatest Afrikaans pop singer Kurt Darren and Alexa Strachan from Kyknet.
Rainbow Skellums is a funny and hilarious candid camera movie (which has not been done for years in South Africa) by well-known movie producer André Scholtz, and will be released on December 24.
In this movie Scholtz and his experienced team travel through South Africa to catch a few victims.
TV cameras were installed in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Heidelberg, Ventersdorp, Strand, Cape Town, Eersterivier and Gordon's Bay, while the three skellums, Kevin Ehrenreich, Alexa Strachan and Louw Venter, tried to catch their victims.
The movie tries to include current dilemmas such as bribery, corruption and security in various themes.
In one of the scenes a taxi driver in Eersterivier insists that every commuter must be weighed before getting into the taxi.
This is due to the fact that most commuters are overweight and cause extra fuel consumption and additional wear and tear on the tyres.
The passengers have to pay R10 for every extra kilogram.
