Jonkershoek Valley, Stellenbosch

We knew we needed shots in a wintry landscape for the middle of the film but could not wait until mid-2022 to get these shots as the film had to be completed. The Western Cape’s mediterranean climate duly provided what we needed: in the first week of April, less than a month after our light-filled late-summer shots in March in the same valley, a brief spell of cold, wet weather with a slight drizzle gave us the opportunity to film Strijdom in a setting that closely resembled the appearance of the Cape mid-winter.
