Noted filmmaker John Boorman (‘Deliverance’, ‘The General’, ‘The Tailor Of Panama’) addresses the complex emotional scars leftover from Apartheid in South Africa in ‘In My Country’. The events of the film take place during hearings conducted in 1996 by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. The purpose of the hearings was to shed light on the atrocities committed during the time of persecution. Anna Malan is a native Afrikaner poet whose is covering the hearings for state radio. During the proceedings, she meets Langston Whitfield an American covering the matter for the Washington Post. Initially, the two don’t get along. He thinks she shares collective guilt for cruelty that was carried out; she thinks he’s a stubborn and ignorant American. Getting past those unfounded first impressions, the two fall in love. Adapted from author Antjie Krog’s memoirs, ‘Country Of My Skull’, the film features strong performances from both leads and by Brendan Gleeson in a supporting role as Colonel De Jager. ‘In My Country’ asks an intriguing question about who should take the blame for what happened; the leaders, the soldiers, or the people who watched it happen and never protested.
