Panic is the guru of pick pockets, nimble, individualistic and cool. He can snatch a man’s wallet and rifle through its contents in front of him, brazenly daring him to object. This is the story of Panic’s transformation. In this landmark film, the first for, about and by black South Africans, a local gangster must choose between personal gain and a united stance against the apartheid system gripping his country.
Presented in collaboration with Film Africa, the Royal African Society’s annual film festival.
Director: Oliver Schmitz South Africa, 100 mins, Cert 15
