Storyline

A South African documentary film about 5 young Afrikaans punk rockers that transformed a generation during a unique time in history - in one of the most reluctantly complex and evolving societies of the 21st century. The film follows the story of the band over 4 years as they forge a place for themselves and their fans in the new South Africa, in the process challenging the stigmas and expectations placed on them by their Afrikaner heritage, the church and tradition. Through the death threats and Christian backlash, they stood tall - sentries for the right to identity and freedom of thought. A story that transcends language and culture; and bravely faces a truth, that most would've left in darkness. Written by Anonymous

A must-see for fan and foe alike.
3 November 2009 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

For fans of the band this is the holy grail.

Everyone in the cinema I was in sang along when the songs played, these are the modern generations hymns.

An incite into an otherwise mystical and reverent group. The documentary covers a whole lot of ground from the Witbank incident to the Nelspruit debacle and further. It's a roots-to-branches documentary that hides nothing. You may even learn something about them.

In short it's the "(Ek Skyn) Heilig" and "Hemel Op Die Platteland (Akoesties Weergawe)" music videos exploded and extrapolated onto big screen. With subtitles to boot.
