The Rehoboth Beach Film Society’s Cinema Art Theater will present “Moffie,” starting Friday, April 9. This compelling war drama follows a drafted teenager through his military service in the South African Defence Force in the 1980s.
South Africa’s white minority government is embroiled in a conflict on the southern Angolan border. Like all white boys over the age of 16, Nicholas Van der Swart must complete two years of compulsory military service to defend the apartheid regime. The threat of communism and “die swart gevaar” (the so-called black danger) is at an all-time high. But that’s not the only danger Nicholas faces. He must survive the brutality of the army – something that becomes even more difficult when a connection is sparked between him and a fellow recruit.
Screening times are 2 p.m., Friday, April 9; 5 p.m., Saturday, April 10; and 1 p.m., Sunday, April 11.
Admission is $8 for members and $11 for nonmembers. Customers are encouraged to purchase tickets online at rehobothfilm.com. If seats are available, tickets can be purchased at the theater starting 30 minutes prior to each screening.
