Save event

Louis de Witt's South African blaxploitation crime film was one of the first films in the country to feature an all-black cast. In 1973, South Africa was in the grips of apartheid and after just two public screenings the film was banned by the government and not seen again for over 40 years.

The film tells the story of a mysterious gangster who starts sabotaging soccer team The Eagles' chance at winning the upcoming championship final. In the criminal underworld of soccer, only our eponymous hero Joe Bullet can save the championship.
