In 1991 documentary filmmaker Nick Broomfield spent a number of frustrating weeks trying to secure an interview with the white supremacist Eugene Terre’Blanche. This film is the record of his time following the leader and his encounters with the far right AWB party that he led. It captures a unique moment in South Africa’s history and the fading moments of a sinister and outmoded political group. Broomfield’s presentation of himself as a hapless amateur gains him unique access to members of the AWB, unafraid to air their shocking views - a strategy that as been much imitated since. Through this, and his deliberate attempts to infuriate Terre’Blanche, Broomfield is able to expose the ridiculous, albeit chilling, nature of the AWB and its leader.
