RIV MOONYEENN LEE
Leon van Nierop has written a moving tribute to a doyenne of the film industry.
Kort na Elize Cawood se afsterwe, verlaat nog 'n grote ons, maar iemand wat min mense buite die indrukstrie werkllik geken het. Van die baie individue wat ek van haar dood in kennis gestel het, was ek verstom oor hoe geweet van wie ek praat en watter leemte sy agterlaat. Want sy het agter die skerms gewerk en sy het formidabele werk gedoen.
Dit is werklik onrusbarend dat 'n mens deesdae die een hudeblyk na die ander doen en dat ons vermaaklikheidsbedryf, veral van mense agter die skerms, al groter leemtes openbaar.
Die rolverdelingregisseur (casting director) Moonyeen Lee. Sy was legendares, taai, reguit, op die man af, met onwerklike kennis, en iemand wat presies geweet het wie in watter rol sou pas. Sy het vele mense se loopbane na hoogtes gestuur en daarvoor moet sy geëer word.
Sy het wonderlike rolverdelings gemaak soos die plaaslike akteurs is Tsotsi, Eye in the Sky, Black Panther The Bang-Bang-Club, Mandela and de Klerk, Long Walk to Freedom en tientalle ander.'n Fors om mee rekening te hou, maar met 'n ensiklopediese kennis van wie in watter rolle pas.
Sy kon ook raad gee sodat akeurs nie verkeerde keuses maak nie, en het vir baie van hulle enorme werk gekry. As iemand 'n gat in die vermaaklikheidswëreold gelaat hek, is dit sy. Sy was ook verantwoordelik vir Afrikaanse rolprentvrolverdelings soos Faan se Trein en Plekkie in die Son en natuurlik Goodbye Bafana
Vir al haar kliënte, wat almal landswys bekend is, is Moonyeen Lee se geliefde naam legendaries. . Ek het het die voorreg gehad het om haar jare gelede 'n paar keer aan huis te ontmoet en kennis te maak. Ons gaan haar mis. Ons meegevoel aan haar dogter en seun en almal at saam met haar gewerk het.
SO NICE TO SEE YOU!

100 Beautiful Things: Free Children’s Books by Book Dash
Theme: Designing with Compassion
Book Dash is an NPO improving literacy by ensuring more children aged five and under have storybooks at home. During its one-day events, three-person teams of creative volunteers (a writer, graphic designer and illustrator) gather to create a visual storybook that is distributed for free. The 140 titles that have resulted from these book-making drives live as open-source files on its website, and as ready-to-read books that anyone around the world can translate, print and distribute.
Says Book Dash Director Julia Norrish, “If kids are exposed to books in their first five years, their economic and academic trajectory is completely improved. This isn’t going to happen if books are stuck in centres of learning and libraries. We get books into homes and bring parents into the equation.”
100 Beautiful Things is presented by the V&A Waterfront in celebration of South Africa’s creativity, compassion, ingenuity and resilience. Every week we will be showcasing five amazingly beautiful creative things that make us proud. It is curated in partnership with Platform Creative. To nominate a beautiful thing, visit www.100beautifulthings.co.za
