After a bumper 2017 year of awards, nominations and success for the hybrid feature documentary "Alison", the team behind Alison signed with Journeyman Pictures.
With all African territories already sold, Journeyman pictures https://www.journeyman.tv/film/7180 have already secured their first international TV sale with mainstream TV channel TVN in Poland.
Alison is the jaw-dropping story of survival against all the odds when in 1994, Alison Botha was abducted at knife-point by two men outside her home in South Africa. Driven into a nature reserve off the main road, she was raped, disembowelled, almost decapitated and left for dead. Against extraordinary odds, mystifying the doctors who had treated her, Alison survived this horrific attack.
But this was only the beginning of her struggle. This is the remarkable story of her fight for justice and recovery
In 2017 alone, Alison was nominated for 5 SAFTA awards, won best African documentary at the 2017 AMVCA awards as well as best screenplay at the 2017 Writer's Guild of South Africa of MUSE awards.
