Shot on the sly throughout South Africa during the smothering years of apartheid by London-based Morena Films, an organization of African exiles and justice-minded Britons, when Last Grave at Dimbaza was finally screened to the wider world it had a seismic impact on viewers, exposing the gross inequalities that were a daily fact of life in Capetown, Johannesburg, and the destitute black townships surrounding them. Screening with Morena’s End of the Dialogue, which uses simple compare-and-contrast to starkly outline and condemn the injustice of apartheid.
Screening in the series Icarus Films at 40.
