Action Kommandant Screening at Ocean View High School
In celebration of Freedom Day, on the 26 April 2018, the Cape Town Museum of Childhood screened the documentary film “Action Kommandant” at Ocean View High School to a group of grade 10 and 11 learners. Action Kommandant is a documentary film based on freedom fighter Ashley Kriel’s life. The film shares intimate details about Kriel’s life, as well as his death, by those close to him. Ashley Kriel contributed to revolutionizing working class youth during the Apartheid Era and will always be remembered for this. At the screening we were joined by Cape Town filmmaker Nadine Cloete who directed and produced the documentary film.
