Scene from “The heart of whiteness”, a documentary by Rehad Desai. If you are interested in the full high resolution version, please click “Watch Full Film”
In a confronting portrait of post-apartheid South African society, documentary filmmaker Rehad Desai seeks to answer a seemingly simple question; was does it mean to be white in a new democratic South Africa? His journey takes him from his hometown Johannesburg, where whites and blacks live together in an uncomfortable balance, to the white-separatist Afrikaner community of Orania. Along the way he interviews white Afrikaners on their views of the new multicultural society and their sense (if any) of an identity of whiteness.
