Indemnity with Jarrid Geduld
With film festivals return to physical screenings this year, South African action thriller film Indemnity is sets to make its world premiere at the Fantasia Film Festival in Canada.
The film is described as one “high-tension, politically-charged action thriller shot and wrapped safely during the pandemic.”
Here’s the official synopsis for Indemnity:
An ex-firefighter in Cape Town is forced to fight for his life after being accused of murdering his wife. As he struggles to survive, connections are revealed between his past, the origin of his PTSD, the mysterious death of his wife, and a government conspiracy with terrifying implications.
It stars Jarrid Geduld (Ellen: Die Storie Van Ellen Pakkies), Nicole Fortuin (Flatland), Andre Jacobs (Black Venus), Gail Mabalane (Blood & Water), and Tashmano Sebe (The Soul Collector), It marks the directorial debut for writer and director Travis Taute, who wrote the hit Netflix series Blood & Water.

With the initially released trailer, Indemnity appears to be on the government conspiracy kick in the vein of those Jason Bourne movies with plenty of action.
The word is that Jarrid Geduld spent three months training with stunt masters Vernon Willemse and Grant Powell (Fury Road, Tomb Raider) to perform all of his own stunts. Not to mention, Geduld pulled off his own Tom Cruise-like stunt of a record-breaking hanging suspension performed from the twenty-first floor of a skyscraper. That’s quite an achievement for a South African production.
Indemnity has its world premiere on August 11th at the Imperial Theatre in Montreal as part of the Fantasia International Film Festival. Also, it’ll be showcased virtually for those who cannot be there physically or comply with social distancing.
