This Land: Dianne Whelan, Jeremy Mendes Directors
In Makhasaneni, a hamlet in rural KwaZulu-Natal, scores of villagers are under threat of forced removal for the second time in as many generations. Forcibly moved here by the apartheid government, now their homes are under threat by a mining company in cahoots with the Entembeni Zulu Royal Family, and who seek to exploit the land over the heads of the people who live and work on it.
An eloquent portrait of the activists and residents of Makhasaneni, This Land is also a brave and necessary exposé of the inadequacy of customary law in a predatory capitalist state. It raises the question, “Is monarchy compatible with democratic land reform?”
