In the eight-part small-town thriller, filmed on location in the Bedford and Adelaide towns of the Ngqushwa Local Municipality of the Amathole District in the Eastern Cape, Silwerskerm Best Actress winner Lea Vivier (Wonderlus, Fynskrif) stars as Yola Fischer. She returns from Chile to the Eastern Cape to bury her father, only to be tormented by spirits in the farm house she has inherited. But with her mother institutionalised, and her own meds running out, Yola has to wonder if the spirits are real or just in her head?
Two-time South African Film and Television Award (SAFTA) winner Pallance Dladla (Shadow, Isibaya) co-stars as Themba, her love interest, a biker on the run. Faniswa Yisa plays Yola’s mother’s nurse, Lindiwe, and Themba’s aunt with Neil Sandilands, Natasha Loring, Antoinette Louw, Laudo Liebenberg and Gerald Steyn also starring.
Alex Yazbek (The Wild, Unmarried, Isibaya), a four-time SAFTA winner, wrote and directed the series that he says is “the story of a family – and a town – with dark secrets, and about how what you push down will eventually rise up.”
TVMzansi says, “DAM is loaded with compelling performances and moments that will leave your skin crawling… From the very start, it promises to stand out from the TV pack,” and GQ writes, “This new show is going to be seriously epic.”
