South Africa Belongs to Us

VHS 35 minutes
Director: Peter Chappell, Chris Austin, Ruth Weiss

In South Africa Belongs to Us, a wife left behind in the homelands, a hospital cleaner, a public health nurse from Soweto, a domestic servant, and a leader of a squatters' camp battle for human dignity in the face of apartheid. Made in 1980, this film still provides one of the best introductions to the daily violence wreaked by apartheid on African family life and the social fabric.
