Action Kommandant is the untold story of slain South African liberation fighter Ashley Kriel. During the oppressive apartheid era, Ashley was known as the Che Guevara of Cape Town’s notorious Cape Flats. He was born into a single-mother-led, working-class family in Bonteheuwel and grew to become the symbol of 1980s youth resistance.
