Dollars and White Pipes

Dollars and White Pipes movieHey I know I’m a few years behind in noticing this movie. My friend Ra-eef Wicomb brought this to my attention today. So here’s the write-up from Video Vision, the main production company, and the trailer from Youtube follows below:

VIDEOVISION’S “DOLLARS AND WHITE PIPES” PREMIERES AT MONTREAL WORLD FILM FESTIVAL

Dollars And White Pipes, the stylish Cape Flats film produced by Videovision Entertainment will have its international premiere at the Montreal World Film Festival where it will be featured in its “Focus On World Cinema” category. The Festival takes place from August 26 to September 5. Dollars And White Pipes, which is written and directed by Donovan Marsh, is based on the true life story of Bernhard Baatjies who grew up in the Cape Flats suburb of Hanover Park. Marsh wrote the script in collaboration with Bernard Baatjies.

Dollars And White Pipes is the feature film debut of director, Donovan Marsh who is known for the popular television series Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? and MTN Gladiators. Marsh also directed the award-winning short film, Dead End for Videovision Entertainment.

Dollars And White Pipes is a rags to riches story which follows Bernhard journey from the drug and gang culture to emotional and moral independence as he overcomes issues of race, education, addiction and racketeering and finally becomes a well respected and law abiding business entrepreneur – which he still is today.

Dollars And White Pipes is an inspirational and original South African story and we are delighted to having its international premiere at the Montreal World Film Festival,” said producer, Helena Spring. “We are thrilled to have made a film that reflects a true life story that is incredibly motivating and very uplifting. Bernhard has emerged as a positive role model for all South Africans. We are also pleased to be continuing our relationship with M-Net’s local production initiative which began with association with Yesterday,” added Spring.

Director, Donovan Marsh commented, “Five years ago a man I didn’t know sat down next to me and told me his life story. For two hours he enthralled me. I told him I was going to make it into a movie. He laughed. Today we are the best of friends and Dollars and White Pipes is the incredible story of his life and a fascinating glimpse into a unique South African sub-culture. I am delighted that Dollars and White Pipes will be featured at the Montreal World Film Festival affording international audiences an insight into the life of Bernhard Baatjies.”

Dollars And White Pipes is a Videovision Entertainment production in association with M-Net and stars a host of Cape talent, among whom are Clint Brink (Generations), Joey Yusuf Rasdien, Shaun Arnolds, Genevieve Howard and Nikki Nelson. The film is produced by Anant Singh and Helena Spring, executive produced by Sanjeev Singh and Sudhir Pragjee, written by Donovan Marsh and Bernhard Baatjies and directed by Donovan Marsh.

Here’s some excellent motivational qoutes by coach Jon Wooden:

Don’t measure yourself by what you have accomplished, but by what you should have accomplished with your ability.

**************

I’d rather have a lot of talent and a little experience than a lot of experience and a little talent.

**************

Material possessions, winning scores, and great reputations are meaningless in the eyes of the Lord, because He knows what we really are and that is all that matters.

**************

Never mistake activity for achievement.

**************

Success comes from knowing that you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming.

**************

If you’re not making mistakes, then you’re not doing anything. I’m positive that a doer makes mistakes.

**************

Be more concerned with your character than your reputation
because your character is what you really are, while your
reputation is merely what others think you are.

**************

Be prepared and be honest.

**************

Success is never final, failure is never fatal. It’s courage that counts.

**************

Winning takes talent, to repeat takes character.

**************

Don’t let what u cannot do interfere with what you can do.

**************

Talent is God given. Be humble. Fame is man given Be grateful. Conceit is self given. Be careful.

**************

Ability may get u to the top, but it takes character to keep u there.

**************

If u don’t have time to do it right, when will u have time to do it over?

**************

It’s what u learn after u know it all that counts.

**************

A coach is someone who can give correction without causing resentment.

**************

It’s the little details that are vital. Little things make big things happen.

**************

Ability iz a poor man’s wealth.

**************

A man may make mistakes, but he isn’t a failure until he starts blaming someone else.

**************

Be prepared & be honest.

**************

It’s amazing how much can be accomplished if no one cares who gets the credit.

**************

Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.

**************

You cannot live a perfect day without doing something 4 someone who will never be able to repay you.

**************

Failure is not fatal, but failure to change might be.

**************

Consider the rights of others before your own feelings, and the feelings of others before your own rights.
