Biography: Mark Dornford-May (born 29 May 1955) is a British-born South African theatre and film director. He worked in theater in England for 25 years and founded Broomhill Opera. Mesmerized by the talent he had witnessed in South Africa, he returned in 2000 with Charles Hazlewood to create a new theatre company in Cape Town. That troupe would become Dimpho Di Kompane. U-Carmen eKhayelitsha, Dornford-May’s first film, won the Golden Bear for Best Film at the Berlin International Film Festival in 2005. Son of Man (2006) is Dornford-May’s second film.
