Since the start of the year, kykNET (DStv channel 144) has offered viewers a variety of local TV movies called “storiefilms”. From drama to comedy, we have seen it all with some well-known faces starring in the movies, including Jacques Bessenger (Adrian in the original local drama Lioness) and Afrikaans veteran actor Phillip Moolman (Boeta van der Spuy in Tjops vir Brekvis).
On Sunday, 14 March, a brand-new storiefilm titled Die Smaak van Saffraan will steal your heart. This film looks at how people cope with loss and grief following a traumatic incident, and its message is that there is always hope.
As with the other storiefilms, Die Smaak van Saffraan features top-notch talent and Viljé Maritz (presenter on the lifestyle show Fiësta) and Monique Rockman (Joy in the Afrikaans soapie Suidooster) shimmer on screen along with a special canine friend named Flirt.
