This relatable, Afrikaans dramady takes a dark turn as it follows the lives of two hopelessly romantic (and romantically hopeless) small town characters, Bennie and Retha. In the age where tecnology is our way of living, Bennie and Retha soon find themselves in the exciting – and deeply self-damaging – world of online dating.
Typecast's very own Chanelle de Jager and Martin Venter co-wrote Konneksies and worked closely with Zebra Worldwide (production company) to bring this short film to the big screens across the globe.
