Overview

Filmmaker Mark Bamford explores issues of race, class, and faith in contemporary South Africa against a witty backdrop in this comedy drama. Kate Debbie Brown runs an animal shelter that seems to attract as many human misfits and cast-offs as dogs and cats; still dealing with the emotional fallout of being abandoned by her father as a girl, Kate welcomes both two- and four-legged friends into her shelter, but isn't quite so open with her heart, and is looking for true love after a series of busted marriages. Jean-Claude Eriq Ebouaney is a scientist exiled from West Africa who works at the shelter to make ends meet; while his political and economic fortunes have hit the bricks, his spirit has not, and he has a knack for charming kids, women, and vicious dogs. Lindiwe Nthati Moshesh is a single mother attempting to support her son and finish her education after the death of her husband, both against steep odds. Dr. Morne Morne Visser is a veterinarian who has also lost his spouse, and seems to carry a torch for Kate. And Habib David Isaacs and Sharifa Quanita Adams are a couple whose marriage of eight years is on the verge of collapse due to her inability to conceive, testing both their patience and their faith. Cape of Good Hope received its North American premiere at the 2004 Tribeca Film Festival.
