Last week we spoke with actor/comedian Riaad Moosa, star of the hit South African film Material. The film co-stars Vincent Ebrahim (The Kumars at No. 42) who plays Riaad’s traditionalist father. We spoke to Vincent for a greater insight into this father son relationship so excellently portrayed by both actors.
MATERIAL received it’s European premiere last week at The London Film Festival. Written and directed by Craig Freimond, the film is set in Johannesburg, and stars stand-up comic Riaad Moosa as Cassim, a dutiful Muslim son who works with his traditionalist father (Vincent Ebrahim, star of The Kumars at No. 42) in the declining family-run textile store. Cassim has a secret desire to hone his skills as a stand-up comedian, material he knows he is not supposed to be working with as he is expected to take over the family business. No sooner does his father find out, suddenly life is no laughing matter any longer.
