The Last Blue Ride: The Hannah Cornelius Story (2022)

True crime documentary Last Blue Ride recounts the 11 hour hell-ride of Stellenbosch students Hannah Cornelius and Cheslin Marsh in 2017. While Marsh survived a near-fatal assault, 21-year-old Cornelius was brutally murdered. The case made international headlines.

Last Blue Ride features CCTV footage from the night alongside a recreation of that hell-ride, narrated by Marsh himself. There’s also footage from her funeral and the subsequent court case.

“As a crime journalist, I cover dozens of brutal crimes and their resulting court cases,” says director Anthony Molyneaux. “However, Hannah’s murder affected me more than the others. South Africans seemed to be touched by the events too, as millions followed the case. But Hannah’s life would shine through the morbid details, and reveal a smart, strong young woman who was loved by many. The film intends to honour her memory.”
