In Darkest Hollywood: Cinema & Apartheid

Rated NR 112 minutes

Using a wealth of archival footage and commentary by filmmakers and actors, including a young John Kani and Miriam Makeba, this two-part film examines the role of cinema in both supporting and attacking Apartheid, focusing on the impact of Hollywood films in South Africa, the depiction of South Africa in Hollywood films, and finally, the emergence of an indigenous film industry in South Africa. It also questions Hollywood's commitment to racial stereotypes and reluctance to depict black heroes.
