South Africa has emerged as one of the most important countries and cultural centers in the world. Meteor 17 premiered its Denzel Washington narrated John Coltrane documentary on the country’s iconic Blue Train in 2017 to great acclaim.     


M17 has entered into a long term, cross territorial, cultural production and marketing partnership with cinevation, South Africa.
