F*kofpolisiekar documentary coming to Showmax
Starting in 2003, director Bryan Little, from Fly on the Wall, chronicled the rise of five friends from Bellville who had the idea of starting an Afrikaans punk band.

“It’s all in there. The partying, the death-threats, the rise and fall,” says Hunter Kennedy, F*kofpolisiekar’s guitarist and lyricist. “I think Fly on the Wall managed to expertly capture and preserve the spirit of that era. This film is a time machine for me – same parts embarrassing and exhilarating.”

The documentary will take you back in time as it captures both a young band trying to make a living from music in South Africa and a new generation of Afrikaners.

On its original release in 2009, the documentary won the Audience Awardat Encounters Documentary Festival, screened at the International Documentary Festival Amsterdam (IDFA), was released across South Africa in cinemas, and was featured in international media.

The documentary kick-started a number of film careers. Little went on to direct U2’s music video for This Is Where You Can Reach Me Now, while his documentary, African Cypher, won both the Encounters Audience Award and the Durban International Film Festival jury prize. Editor, Wim Steytler moved into directing, winning the CFP-E/Shots Young Director Award at Cannes Lions in 2014, and DOP, Grant Appleton has worked as a camera operator on international series likes Homeland and Black Mirror, as well as films like Chronicle.

”Often at shows, an 18-year-old fan will come to me stating that he/she watched the documentary and how it has changed his/her life and that this is his/her first F*kof show,” says bassist, Wynand Myburgh. “This kid was five-years-old when we released our first EP in 2003. I realised that besides the music, the documentary has given the band legs, given new fans a better insight into the earlier years of F*kof. It is for this reason I contacted Fly On The Wall and got the ball rolling for it to be added to Showmax, so now everyone can watch it.”

To coincide with the release of the documentary on Showmax, F*kopolisiekar are playing at Hillcrest Quarry in Cape Town on Sunday, 22 January. The band will also be running a crowdfunding campaign in the coming months, with the goal of recording their first full-length album since 2006, for release later this year.
