Plot & Details

Set out on the open highway with three comedians as they make their way to South Africa's biggest annual music festival in director John Barker's raucous road-trip comedy. Kags is a egotistical chauvinist who takes great joy in tormenting his buddies, Joey is a conflicted Muslim striving to avoid the temptations of club life while remaining faithful to his girlfriend, and Dave is a blissfully naïve dishwasher who longs for his shot at the big time; together the trio pile into their car to make the drive to Oppikoppi and showcase their standup skills to a hard-partying crowd of rock & roll fans while discovering that sometimes when you gamble everything, you can get a bit more than you bargained for. Named after a popular Johannesburg staple consisting of hollowed out bread stuffed with a mixture of vegetables, curries, and meats and frequently enjoyed after a long night of drinking, Bunny Chow presents an unguarded look at contemporary South Africa as a growing cultural melting pot simmering with youthful energy and renaissance.
