A crack in the crucible: A review of ‘I, Afrikaner’
The behaviour of Steve Hofmeyer and the fans that sang Die Stem along with him a few weeks ago has cast Afrikaners as an angry breed, out of touch with the new South Africa. Yet in ‘I, Afrikaner’ a beautiful new film about an Afrikaner family, a more complex picture is drawn. Perhaps as a black woman, I found myself captivated by this story, because I happened to marry into an Afrikaner family. It’s no wonder that the film won the best director award at the Durban Film Festival this week. By KIM ROBINSON.
