A South African classic
9 April 2000 | by ErandirSee all my reviews

"Fiela se Kind" (Fiela's Child) is the story of a white foundling boy that is raised by a brown family. But Benjamin's life changes irrevocably when white census officials discover him living across the established borders of society, and he is removed from his foster parents. Thus begins Benjamin's journey to discover his true identity. It is a moving rendition of South African life a century past, and certainly well worth watching.
