Soon, he will find himself the target of every cop in Cape Town, a wanted man denounced as a public danger over a horrific crime he has zero memory of committing.

Official Press Release: 

July 28, 2021 -- Indemnity is the latest from Cape Town production studio Gambit Films, producers of the hit Netflix series Blood & Water and instrumental in bringing South African genre cinema into the mainstream. The film marks the feature debut from writer/director Travis Taute, co-writer of Nosipho Dumisa’s award-winning NUMBER 37 and co-director of the short that preceded it by the same name, as well as a writer and director on Blood & Water.

Reaching a whole new scale of production for South African action films, Indemnity's lead, Jarrid Geduld, spent three months training with stunt masters Vernon Willemse and Grant Powell (Fury Road, Tomb Raider) and succeeded at all of his own stunts, including a record-breaking hanging suspension stunt performed from the 21st floor. 

Indemnity stars  SAFTA-award winner Jarrid Geduld (Ellen: Die Storie Van Ellen Pakkies), Nicole Fortuin (Flatland), Andre Jacobs (Black Venus), Gail Mabalane (Blood & Water), and Tshamano Sebe (The Soul Collector). The film is produced by Bradley Joshua and Benjamin Overmeyer.

Indemnity's World Premiere is August 11th at the Imperial Theatre in Montreal, QC. It will also screen on the festival's virtual platform.
