Port Nolloth – Between A Rock And A Hard Place


Director Felix Seuffert Production Butterfly Films Editor Anna Telford

Exploring the concepts of faith, fate and fortune, ‘Port Nolloth – Between A Rock And A Hard Place’ follows three inhabitants of a declining diamond mining town on the remote South African West Coast. Each one has their story with diamonds: Derrick, who after being bust for smuggling found catharsis in his taxi operation; Goeff, an ageing diamond diver firmly believing that he’ll strike it rich one day, and Nick the shady ex-mayor, convicted of foul diamond deals but convinced that it was all given to him from above.

Port Nolloth premiered at the International Documentary Festival in Amsterdam and won 3 South African Film And Television Awards, while being nominated for two more.
