Farmlands
2 July 2018 | by a_baronSee all my reviews

The gorgeous Lauren Southern stars in her first full length documentary, virtually a one-woman production, and it is a difficult subject indeed she tackles. She begins with an extremely brief historical background to South Africa, one of which few if any opponents of the former apartheid régime are aware. Namely that whites have been in the Cape longer than blacks.

Its original inhabitants were the Bushmen, referred to here as the Khoikhoi. Although she tackles the war waged against them by the Bantu, what Lauren does not mention here is that the Bushmen are now facing virtual extinction, and that their modern persecution began after the end of apartheid. As might be suspected from the title, she concentrates instead on the plight of the white farmers and the increasing white underclass. She visits the quaint Orania, but her most enlightening interview is not with the guy who runs that, rather it is with the deranged Zanele Lwana who is clearly ignorant of the aforementioned history, because she talks of taking back from the whites land blacks have never owned.

Nelson Mandela was widely believed to have been a communist, a belief that was very reasonable in view of his antecedents. In fact, he was no more communist than are the current rulers of China, and a lot more democratic. Whether he was sincere or simply pragmatic, he was sensible enough to realise that without its educated white elite, South Africa would soon deteriorate into the sort of chaos embraced by so many other African nations. Sadly, his successors have taken a more radical path, as Lauren shows here, and overall her mood is one of pessimism. Hopefully, she is wrong, but it doesn't look like that at the moment.
