Cinema Nouveau audiences will be able to catch the third title in the 2012 Best Oscar Foreign Language Film Nominees series from November 23.
‘Bullhead’, a Belgian Drama directed by Michael R. Roskam, is the story of a young dominating cattle farmer named Jacky Vanmarsenille (played by Matthias Schoenaerts).

But the assassination of a federal policeman and an unexpected confrontation with a mysterious secret from his past sets in motion a chain of events with far-reaching consequences.
Produced by Savage Film & Eyeworks, ‘Bullhead’ is an exciting tragedy about fate, lost innocence and friendship, crime and punishment, as well as conflicting desires and the irreversibility of a man’s destiny. The thrilling title will be screened at both Cinema Nouveau sites in Cape Town, namely Cavendish and the V&A Waterfront.
