South Africa/UK/1994/100 mins/18. Dir: Richard Stanley.
On an endless stretch of road in the Namibian desert, a hitch hiker – who is in fact a soul taker – hitches rides and takes the lives of those who are tired of life. The impoverished town of Bethany, where everything is dying, beckons him. Only the seer, an unemployed ex-projectionist, can see the outcome. Steeped in the mythology of Africa, Dust Devil is South African director Richard Stanley’s finest work.
