South African sci-fi to premiere at prestigious US festival
13 February 2020
The sci-fi/horror film Fried Barry is set to premiere at the acclaimed Cinequest Film Festival in San Jose, California in March this year. Fried Barry follows the outlandish tale of a heroin addict whose body is hijacked by an alien visitor.
The South African, cult-style film marks the feature film directing debut of celebrated music video director, Ryan Kruger. The film boasts a star-studded cast of local and international actors including Hakeem Kae-Kazim (Pirates of the Caribbean 3, Black Sails), Sean Cameron Michael (MacGyver, 24) and Chanelle De Jager (The Widow, Outlander).
The world premiere will take place on 6 March at Cinequest Film Festival. Cinequest was voted Best Film Festival by USA Today readers and is one of the world’s most influential film festivals in existence since 1990. Fried Barry is the only African-made feature film in this year’s Cinequest programme.
