KROTOA

CAST: Armand Aucamp, Crystal-Donna Roberts, Brendon Daniels, Deon Lotz

DIRECTOR: Roberta Durrant

Krotoa, a feisty, bright, young 11-year-old girl, is removed from her close-knit Khoi tribe to serve Jan van Riebeeck (Armand Aucamp), her uncle’s trading partner. She is brought into the first Fort established by the Dutch East India Company in 1652. There, she grows into a visionary young woman who assimilates into the Dutch language and culture so well that she rises to become an influential interpreter for van Riebeeck. While van Reibeeck became the first Governor of the Cape Colony, the adult Krotoa (Crystal-Donna Roberts) was both rejected by her own Khoi people and destroyed by the Dutch when she tried to find the middle road between the two cultures.
