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.

Katherine (Tamryn Speirs)

Tamryn is a stalwart of the South Africa theatre scene, teaching many students, as well as performing in a wide range of productions herself. Katherine is a character lost in herself, who compromises too much for false goals, until Liza sets off a chain of unexpected and dramatic events!
