DStv to air documentary Hafeni: The Man from Mondesa

08 November 2019 | Art and Entertainment

MultiChoice Africa is proud to announce that on Sunday, 10 November at 19:30 the highly acclaimed documentary Hafeni: The Man from Mondesa will air on DStv's channel 409.

This fills MultiChoice Namibia with pride, as it is a local production made by Namibians, telling a story that will resonate with viewers across Africa.

Hafeni: The Man from Mondesa was produced for CGTN Africa & Fireworx Media as part of the Faces of Africa series. It documents the story of Heinrich Hafeni, a man who found his unique niche in Namibia's coastal tourism sector. His cultural tours introduce visitors from all over the world to life in the township of Mondesa, the heartbeat of Swakopmund, as Hafeni refers to the community. The documentary was made by local filmmaker Tim Huebschle and a very talented pool of passionate Namibian filmmakers. Hafeni said of the airing of the documentary: “It's both amazing and humbling to know that my story, so expressively captured by Tim and his team, will be aired on DStv to be seen by a large pan-African audience.”

Huebschle, born in Germany and raised in Namibia, has been making films and documentaries for years and having this documentary aired on DStv is a testament to the dedication to his craft, as well as his ability to see, translate and harness stories into fascinating film projects such as Hafeni: The Man from Mondesa. Tim Huebschle added it is the second Faces of Africa documentary he has made in the last two years. “It is very cool to work on an established format such as the Faces of Africa series. You deliver a story according to specs from the TV station. But at the same time you're telling a story, a Namibian story, about an individual in their environment.” One of the executive producers of the documentary is Neil Brandt, a leading African and international industry expert. Brandt, apart from being the executive producer of this documentary, also recently presented a masterclass on financing productions and distribution, which forms part of the multi-tiered MultiChoice Talent Factory (MTF) programme. This is a series of industry-led workshops that upskill and empower established professionals across Africa's film and TV industries. MTF is a creative, shared-value initiative that provides a platform for creative professionals to develop their talent and engage with one another through their shared passions.
