Faith Like Potatoes (2006)
USA dvd Release Apr 2009

Frank Rautenbach leads a strong cast as Angus Buchan, a Zambian farmer of Scottish heritage, who leaves his farm in the midst of political unrest and travels south with his family to start a better life in Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa. With nothing more than a caravan on a patch of land and help from his Zulu foreman, Simeon Bhengu, the Buchan family struggles to settle in a new country. Faced with ever-mounting challenges, hardships and personal turmoil, Angus quickly spirals down into a life consumed by anger, fear and destruction.

Based on the inspiring true story of Angus Buchan's autobiographical book, Faith Like Potatoes was adapted for the big screen by award winning actor and director, Regardt van der Bergh, and weaves together the moving journey of a man who, like his potatoes, grows his faith, unseen until the harvest. This inspiring true story of a rugged South African farmer, Angus Buchan, is set in the turbulent hills of the KZN Midlands. Angus' manic quest for material success is slowly transformed into a wild love for God and people, as he wrestles with faith, hope, natural disasters and tragic personal loss.

"The seed for a great miracle lies not in difficulty but in impossibility."

Says Regardt: “I, as a director, love telling true stories. Just the thought that the events we are portraying really happened is such a rush. To tell stories of how God impacts the lives of people is the best, but with it comes an awesome responsibility: the responsibility of being truthful and also representing the way of God in the person's life accurately. Our film stays truthful to the heart of Angus and Jill's story and I believe God, through this film, will touch your heart as He did theirs.”
