A real estate developer, on the brink of bankruptcy, travels with his wife to a lavish and remote glass house bordering an informal settlement on a sweeping landscape in the Western Cape of South Africa. He is desperate to sell it. When his wife goes inexplicably missing, stifled by a sense of looming distrust and financial pressure, he is caught in a maze of missteps and uncertainty. What transpires within the walls of this glass house then has little to do with money and everything to do with the human condition: souls are left pondering the line between what is real and what is perceived.

“With Fynbos I set out to make a film that was an exercise in minimalism. Not as an artistic end, but as a way of allowing seemingly specific things
that happen in the film to remain open to multiple interpretations.”

Fynbos is Harry Patramanis debut feature film through his production company A FOUR LETTER WORD
exploring creative collaborations based on trust, fearlessness and minimal production.
