Stroomop is a film about self-discovery, forgiveness, healing and acceptance.
Stroomop follows the lives of five very unique, very diverse women who are all trying to keep their heads above water on this river we call life, but who are actually busy drowning under the weight of the definition of being perfect … Perfect mother, perfect woman, perfect career, perfect weight, perfect hair … (Yes, this list can become very very long!) Women who are being tossed about in the biggest waves that sometimes thunder over all of us in life, or who have simply been swept away in an unending stream of worldly expectations and who have completely lost their own identity.
The bonus features on the DVD explores the journey of writer-director Ivan Botha, a look into the characters and how the film was shot.
The film is in Afrikaans with English subtitles and highly recommended to anyone looking for a film with bite, showing how the fragile humanity of broken lives are healed through friendship.
