‘High Fantasy is a movie for the woke set in 2017; it’s about the exploration of the beliefs we espouse on the surface, art that bores beneath that surface to mine its characters’ true feelings.’ — Andrew Crump, The Playlist
Four friends go on a camping trip on a remote property in the South African countryside. To their horror, they wake up on the first morning and discover they’ve all swapped bodies — black and white, male and female are now reversed. What follows is a smart and riveting exploration of racial bias, with the heavy legacy of apartheid and gender politics examined through the leads’ superbly acted, naturalistic and freaked-out conversation.
