Films about South Africa to inform Disgrace Discussion

 

     Many of you did a unit on South Africa for Mr. Welter in 9th grade.  Those who didn’t have him may have read about the history of South Africa via newspapers, television, or novels like Heart of Darkness. In the event that you aren’t well informed through social studies, novels, contemporary news, or film, here are lists of films to help you catch up.  Unfortunately, we don’t have a film study class in school, but try a few on your own and see what you think.  Your recommendations and responses would be appreciated.  It goes without saying that knowing something of the history of the apartheid history of South Africa will inform your reading of Disgrace.  Well, now I’ve said it, so no excuses.
