Abstract:Nearly 20 years after democracy was installed in South Africa, this documentary film shows an intimate family saga. It's the story of four generations and their response to an ever-changing inner and outer landscape. Filmed over 9 years, it portrays a filmmaker's family trapped in an unsolvable conflict. Set in rural South Africa where land is a highly contentious issue and violence against white farmers is endemic, the film journeys into how four generations deal with change in a post-Apartheid era: the filmmaker's grandmother, who leaves the farm after an attack; her brother and sister-in-law as they push forward with the traditional Afrikaner dream of farming commercial land; and her young niece, whose post-Apartheid upbringing and views are tested when tragedy comes to the farm.
