Writer/director Mark Jackson's first full-length feature, Girl From Nowhere, is an Indie-Erotic-thriller set in the beautiful mountains of the Cederberg, in the Western Cape, in South Africa. It stars Tamryn Speirs, Scot Cooper, and the award-winning Christia Visser in her debut performance, in a gripping tale that confronts sexuality and patriarchy. The movie also boasts an inventive  and original South African soundtrack.

About director Mark Jackson

Mark is a Cape Town based filmmaker, with a wide experience in the industry, from directing a few commercials, and a TV magazine show, to assistant editing in Hollywood, to shooting documentaries across Africa.
He also storyboards his own work, and is busy finishing off a graphic novel of his next film script, The Oracle Machine.
Mark hopes to release that novel first, on Comixology and elsewhere, to draw attention, and perhaps funders too, to the potential of the story as an awesome film script.

Liza (Christia Visser)

This is Christia's first film, and she has since starred in several other South African features. Her character Liza is childish in some respects, worldly in others, and it's this dangerous duality that throws Katherine off balance.
