Film Screening at UMass: “State of Violence”

There’s a film screening at UMass on Wed, Feb 2 (weather permitting, I assume) on violence and injustice in South Africa. See here for details for those of you who might be interested.

Here’s a brief summary: “Matabane’s début action feature brings a new voice to African cinema—complex, questing, hybrid, fearless. When Bobedi, one of Johannesburg’s new black business élite, returns home to find an intruder attacking his wife, he takes justice into his own hands and is confronted by his militant past. One man’s story becomes an examination of collective memory and denial, ever-vital issues within South Africa where the past remains present and justice is never simple.”
