A chat with Carolyn Carew from Free Women Films


Renos Nicos Spanoudes chats to Producer Carolyn Carew from Free Women Films, about STOUT showing through eMedia’s digital platform eVOD.
Carolyn is passionate about great storytellers telling great stories, works 16-hour days, 7 days a week.
She has untold dexterity in ensuring that all that she juggles is skilfully crafted and lands in all the right places, reflecting pertinent messages that are an intrinsic part of all that she values.
Full Circle Productions and Free Women Films, the powerful team behind Seconds Film, delivers another enthralling episodic drama, Stout, through eMedia’s digital platform eVOD on 18 July.
Producer Nhlanhla Mthethwa says the “fascinating and enthralling story of triumph over adversity is driven by a stellar cast, scripted by Nonzi Bogatsu, is brought to life under the direction of Denny Y Miller.”
Stout tells the story of a troublesome teenager, Lumko – played by Ntobeko Sishi (best known for playing his role as Ntokozo on Gomora) – Lumko gets a harsh reality check when he finds himself in a reform school for delinquent youth. This harsh world forces him to face his mistakes and fears so he can become the best version of himself.
A close family friend uses his influence to get Lumko a lighter sentence: being enrolled in Jonah’s House for Boys (JHB), an institution for troublesome (and troubled) young men – in effect, a “stout school.”
eVOD is a video streaming service that gives you access to local and international shows and movies, new original productions, documentaries, and much more.
