South African Propaganda Films of the Apartheid Era: Selection IV

Synopsis
During the apartheid era, the South African Information Service launched a campaign of propaganda and disinformation aimed at the Western powers, which it considered its natural allies against what it called the ‘Communist onslaught’. The films ranged from ostensibly straightforward tourist films, anthropological films with racist undertones, to savage attacks on the ANC. This selection includes ‘Remnants of the Stone Age People’ and ‘Bantu Tribes’.
