Exclusive Video Interview: Director and Cast of TIFF World Premiere ‘Death of a Whistleblower’

Check out more of our video interviews on our YouTube channel.

The completely independent, all South African production Death of a Whistleblower tells a story that spans generations of South African history and looks at the coercive, sinister methods employed by those who wish to remain in power above all else. It’s also a tight thriller that, according to those involved, emphasizes entertainment along with its depiction of an important facet of its nation’s identity.

I had the chance to speak with director Ian Gabriel and six members of the cast – Noxolo Dlamini, Irshaad Ally, Kathleen Stephens, Anthony Oseyemi, Inez Robertson, and S’thandiwe Kgoroge – about being part of this film, what it means to be able to tell stories like this, and their excitement about it making its debut in Toronto.
