apartheid.jpg Apartheid

Contemporary Films was at the forefront of producing and distributing documentaries and feature films, bringing to the attention of the British public the horrors of the political system of apartheid in South Africa.

Our first production directed by John Krish, Let My People Go, was originally banned at the instigation of South Africa House, after British television had agreed to screen it. Over the years that followed, we have represented the work of many South African filmmakers including Betty Wolpert (Tsiamelo and Awake from Mourning), Debbie May (You have Struck a Rock), Ken Law (Penny Whistle Boys), as well as British filmmakers including Simon Louvich/Antonio Caccia (End of the Dialogue and Last Grave at Dimbaza).
