Windhoek – Carlito, Adriano Visagie, the winner of the Best Male Actor in a Theatre Play at this year’s Namibia Theatre and Film Awards (NTFA) on 24 November, is a young Namibian man who is sentenced to five years imprisonment because of fraud.
Nothing can prepare Carlito, for his new life in custody. Naive, he gets lured into the group of the General (Monray Garoeb), a dangerous criminal who rules over his cell. The video of the play, which premiered in October at the Warehouse Theatre here, is billed for a coastal premiere next Wednesday at the Cosdec Hall at 19H00. Tickets are N$60 in advance online at Events Today and N$80 at the door. This film is rated ‘Parental Guidance 16’ (strong language, nudity, sex) and no children under the age of 16 will be allowed for the premiere.
