Stilte: SA Film Releasing September 2012
ANTOINETTE VAN WYK has everything to live for. She is young, beautiful and a very talented singer. She is on the verge of realising her dreams, when a terrible tragedy strikes. Both her parents are killed in a violent home invasion and she too, is left for dead. She survives the ordeal and relocates to a farm in Oudtshoorn to stay with her Aunt and Uncle. STILTE is the story of her road to recovery. It’s not an easy journey: Traumatised by her ordeal, she refuses to speak, let alone sing. Her Aunt and Uncle are baffled by this. The doctors have said there’s nothing physically wrong with her but Antoinette will not utter a word, preferring to communicate with a notebook. This is a constant source of grief, especially for her Aunt who desperately wants ANTOINETTE to be happy again. When it seems there is no hope, ANTOINETTE encounters the local pastor after she leaves his church service prematurely one Sunday morning. His name is PETER and he’s no ordinary pastor - he’s young, in his mid-twenties and has a lust for life and helping others. He tries to make her understand the bigger picture, that her life was spared for a reason. But she won’t have any of it: The pivotal scene in the story occurs when she blurts out that she has lost her faith, in everything, including God. PETER is amazed- she can speak! ANTOINETTE swears him to secrecy as she doesn’t want anyone to know including her Aunt and Uncle. Copyright UIPSA
