Ian Gabriel, director of the critically acclaimed film Four Corners, features in the second episode of Brand South Africa’s Play Your Part TV series, to air on SABC2 on Sunday 22 June at 9pm.
There are thematic links between Ian Gabriel’s two films, Forgiveness and Four Corners. The latter is about family trying to get beyond the past to make a new life. The former deals with apartheid and the difficulty of reconciliation.
Gabriel is equally at home directing off-the-cuff, slice-of-life observation as he is bringing the human touch to celebrity talent. His work with jazz greats Miriam Makeba and Abdullah Ibrahim, political icons Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu, football star Cristiano Ronaldo, actress Charlize Theron, world champion long distance runner Haile Gebrselassie, among others, is testament to his ability to achieve outstanding performances from actors, characters, musicians, sports heroes and political figures.
