Wild Season is a 1967 South African drama film directed by Emil Nofal and starring Gert Van den Bergh, Marie Du Toit and Antony Thomas. A family operating a trawler off the South African coast, suffer a personal tragedy.
The film provoked a backlash in South Africa because it was bilingual and featured black actors in leading roles. It was also felt that it portrayed a negative, stereotypical portrayal of Afrikaners. A number of scenes were directed by Jans Rautenbach, because Emil Nofal suffered from seasickness.
