Trailer for The Devil's Lair.
In Riaan Hendricks s jarring observational doc, The Devil s Lair, family life teeters on the brink. Greying patriarch Braaim is a central member of the NTK (Nice to Kill) gang in a slice of the Cape Flats of South Africa, where living is hardscrabble. The way he lives, anything can happen, laments Braaim s wife of the volatile environment surrounding their three children. Making things worse is an escalating turf war as rival gangs edge into NTK territory. Like a fly on the wall, we witness Braaim endlessly juggle street hooliganism and household responsibility what s a gangster to do when all he s ever known is the street? For all the narcotic profiteering and assassination plotting, The Devil s Lair is a portrait of a burdened man whose greatest fear is bequeathing his grievous fate to his children.
