News that a film about the Oscar Pistorius murder trial will be aired on an American television channel hit South Africa this week.
The film, titled Oscar Pistorius: Blade Runner Killer, is set to premiere on November 11, and is told from "the point of view" of murder-victim Riva Steenkamp and her mother.
According to an article on Channel 24, however, Steenkamp’s mother was never contacted in any way about the film and considers the film to be a "gross misrepresentation of the truth".
Pistorius will be played by Andreas Damm in the film, a New York-based actor who grew up in Johannesburg himself.
Meanwhile, ongoing top court battles are aiming to have Pistorius’ six-year jail sentence increased.
