Kai Luke Brummer is the protagonist of the new film Moffie. A film that opens up about white men in the 80s being pushed to the ideology of superiority and hate. During the period of the Border War between South West Africa, today Namibia and Angola. 

The Synopsis

To be a moffie is to be weak, effeminate, illegal. The year is 1981 and South Africa’s white minority government is embroiled in a conflict on the southern Angolan border. Like all white boys over the age of 16, Nicholas Van der Swart (Kai Luke Brummer, “Professionals”) must complete two years of compulsory military service to defend the Apartheid regime. The threat of communism and “die swart gevaar” (the so-called black danger) is at an all-time high. But that’s not the only danger Nicholas faces. He must survive the brutality of the army – something that becomes even more difficult when a connection is sparked between him and a fellow recruit.
