Joost Van Der Westhuizen: A Life of Two Halves
Documentary about Joost Van Der Westhuizen, and his transition from Rugby World Cup winner to Motor Neuron Disease sufferer. Joost casts his mind back to the journey that culminated in winning the 1995 World Cup; a victory that changed South Africa’s political landscape in a post apartheid era. With the onset of Motor Neuron Disease in October 2010, Joost looks towards a new journey, with very different challenges. Produced in conjunction with OSN, “Joost Van Der Westhuizen: A Life of Two Halves”, is a story of how a man, who has won it all, sees an incurable disease as the opportunity to “fix my life 110%”.
