WHAT IS DANIEL MUNRO?
Daniel Munro is a 30 minutes Comedy-Drama Short Film by award winning South African Filmmaker, Willem van den Heever.
Daniel Munro (Armand Aucamp) is a mysterious, wealthy young man from the
city, who ends up at a road stall in the middle of the barren Tankwa Karoo (semi-desert
in South Africa). His car broke down and with roadside assistance only
able to send someone out the following Monday, he is forced to spend the
weekend at the road stall. The stall is run by Cornelius Theron (Callie Theron); a
wise, old, Afrikaans man, with a different view on life than Daniel. Things at the
stall then suddenly heat up when two detectives decide to show up. A story with
strong themes of ignorance and arrogance, love and tragedy.
The dangers of the money driven society we are living in and how money can’t
buy happiness. One man’s journey of becoming the man he was intended to be.
A Comedy Drama with quirky elements. A story rich in comedy as well as
tragedy. Interesting mannerisms of the contrasting and unique characters are
placed against the epic and awe-awakening backdrop of the great Karoo desert
