Action Kommandant Now On Showmax

The 2016 film Action Kommandant that tells the story of South African freedom fighter, Ashley Kriel is finally available on Showmax.
Ashley Kriel grew up in a working class family on the Cape Flats and came to be recognized as the icon of South Africa's 1980's youth resistance.
The film is an intimate portrayal of this son, brother and revolutionary who became known as the Che Guevara of Bonteheuwel.

With almost every other film made on the Cape Flats that end up showing at mainstream cinemas, there is almost always a negative backlash and usually it's even before anyone who is complaining had actually seen it.
Nommer 37 is no different in that there is already a backlash from people who have most certainly not yet seen the film which opens at cinemas on Friday 1 June 2018.
