Momentum Pictures have dropped a new trailer for the drama-thriller ‘Escape from Pretoria’ starring a rather scruffy looking Daniel Radcliffe.
Based on Tim Jenkin’s autobiography Inside Out: Escape from Pretoria Prison, the story focuses on two political captives, young, white South Africans branded “terrorists”, and imprisoned in 1978 for working covert operations for Nelson Mandela’s banned ANC. Incarcerated in Pretoria Maximum Security Prison, they decide to send the apartheid regime a clear message and escape! With breath-taking ingenuity, meticulous surveillance, and wooden keys crafted for 10 steel doors, they make a bid for freedom…Beyond a thrilling will-they-won’t-they-escape, this is the story of an oppressed majority’s struggle and two ordinary men who stood up to be counted in the pursuit of equality for all.
Written and directed by Francis Annan, the film stars Daniel Radcliffe, Daniel Webber, Ian Hart, Mark Leonard Winter and Nathan Page.
