Robyn Slovo

Robyn Slovo (b. 1953) is a South African film producer. Her work includes the 2000 film Morvern Callar, the 2006 film Catch a Fire, and the 2011 film Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy.

Slovo started her career in theatre,[1] before moving into the television and film industry, working first as a script editor and development executive for the BBC, and then as a film producer for Company Pictures and Working Title Films.

Slovo is the daughter of Joe Slovo and Ruth First — both famous South Africans and major figures in the anti-apartheid struggle who lived perilous lives of exile, armed resistance, and occasional imprisonment, culminating in her mother's assassination in 1982. A family memoir in the form of a feature film, A World Apart, was written by her sister Shawn Slovo and starred Barbara Hershey. She played her mother in the film Catch a Fire, also written by her sister Shawn Slovo. She is the youngest sister of novelist Gillian Slovo and screenwriter Shawn Slovo.
