FIXERS: GAMBIT FILMS COLLABORATES WITH SUNDOG PICTURES / BBC

In October/November 2013 Producer Benjamin Overmeyer represented Gambit Films, working in collaboration with Sun Dog Pictures as a Fixer in their new BBC3 factual program starring Reggie Yates. “The Real South Africa” is a 3 part observational film series shot in Johannesburg and Cape Town. Gambit Films facilitated the Cape Town episode, which focused on teenage gang problems in the Khayelitsha Township. Through the prism of Doctors based in the casualty ward of Khayelitsha’s newest Hospital and the inside story of young gang members the episode looks at the life of young South Africans in the 21st Century. Reggie Yates discovers both the beauty of a City rated the number must see in 2014 by the New York Times as well as the desperate lives of hopeless youngsters stuck in townships full of social ills.
