My Country, My Hat

Rated NR 86 minutes

This film on apartheid belabors its message on the outmoded, racist use of passes for blacks -- for without a pass at this point in time, a black South African has no identity, he or she cannot work, nor get food, nor hold out any hope for survival for the future. So when James (Peter SePuma) a young black without a pass finds out his white employer killed a black man whom he thought had broken into his house and attacked his wife, he uses his knowledge to get the one thing that means the most to him -- his own pass. Justice may work in mysterious ways, because just as the deserving young James obtains the dead man's pass in the end, his boss gets away with murder.~ Eleanor Mannikka, All Movie Guide
