Powerful, poignant study of the violence surrounding the 1981 Springbok tour

8/10
Author: shaun jury (decameron500@hotmail.com) from auckland, new zealand
2 November 1999

In 1981, the New Zealand government invited the South African rugby team to tour New Zealand. This effectively split the country in half. Patu! is the story of the protest movement, HART (halt all racist tours). This documentary shows footage of protester meetings, rugby games and various beatings meted out to protesters from police. Patu! is powerfully directed by Merata Miti, and is one of the most convincing anti-racism statements I've seen yet. Check it out, if you can.
