A new feature film about the life of renowned South African evangelist Angus Buchan. The film is written and directed by F.C Hamman and being produced by F.C Hamman Films International and Spotlight Entertainment. The film stars Angus Buchan as himself with Anrich Herbst as a middle aged Angus.
Other starring roles include Anton Dekker, Jaco Muller, Lucky Koza, Robin Smith, Norman Anstey, and Hannes Muller.

Angus Buchan’s Ordinary People is a biopic of his life and tells his story from humble beginnings to leading over 300 000 men at a Mighty Man Conference held on his farm to praise the living God.  It also tells three other stories of ordinary people whose lives were directly affected by his ministry.

“I was a young boy when I was first called to the ministry,” Buchan says. “I approached my local minister, and he told me to complete my schooling and then go on to study theology. I was devastated because I had left school and could not afford to attend university. As a result, I walked away from my calling and became a farmer.”

“In 1979, Buchan’s life was in disarray, but once again he believed he was called. In a tiny church in Greytown he rededicated his life to Jesus. This was the start of his ministry, which was to lead eventually to the popular Mighty Men conferences.
Initially he preached to the workers on his farm and later he drove out to the maize fields and sermonised from the back of his pick-up truck. “While I was out in the fields on my own, I visualised preaching to thousands of people.
Thirty years later, on the very same spot, I got on the stage and preached the gospel, a written account of the life, death, and Resurrection of Jesus Christ, to 300 000 men.”

Angus Buchan’s Ordinary People is a remarkable story about faith in action and how Buchan saw God work through regular folk to make a huge difference in the lives of others. The film follows the stories of several people whose lives are dramatically changed by Buchan’s ministry. It is an inspirational story that Buchan believes will show God’s love for humankind in action, and has the potential to change the lives of those who watch it.

“I turned to Jesus in 1981,” says director FC Hamman. “I believe that God has been preparing me for this moment and that with Angus Buchan’s Ordinary People – and a number of other Christian films to follow – I am fulfilling my calling.”
