Popular South African actor Frank Rautenbach will visit New Zealand in late October, early November to share an extraordinary story.
After playing the lead character in the hit South African film “Faith Like Potatoes” based on the true story of Angus Buchan, Frank’s life took an unexpected turn for the worst.
After the film made the rounds at the international film festival circuits and received great acclaim, Frank was set to take the international movie scene by storm; but things didn’t end up going according to plan.
Frank says “My career fell spectacularly and of course that leads to a loss of income and we had to sell our house. We lost several relatives, and there were several pregnancies that ended in heartbreak and tears.”
The night before he starting shooting the movie Frank met Angus and he explained to him “My boy, if you are going to play me in a movie, the Lord is going to take you through fire”. Frank goes on to explain “At the time I had no idea what that meant for me, but as the next nine years of my life unfolded, the picture became clearer”.
Faith like Potatoes is a biographical film based on the book written by Angus Buchan, which depicts his struggles as he relocates his family to start a better life in rural South Africa. It is through these personal struggles that Angus cultivates an unwavering belief in the power of faith.
Frank’s personal journey of growth mirrors that of Angus Buchan. Frank will share about the lessons he learnt through this personal turmoil and how despite going through tremendous struggles he has been able to cultivate an unwavering belief in the power of faith, just like Angus.
Joining Frank on the tour is the talented and charismatic singer songwriter David Lyle Morris. Together this team will inspire and challenge you in this not to be missed event.
