1979 – FILM oor Jopie Fourie

This film depicts the final days of Commandant Josef Johannes “Jopie” Fourie (August 27, 1879 – December 20, 1914), a Boer War veteran and leader of the 1914 Afrikaner Rebellion. The 1914 Rebellion broke out when dissatisfied Boers/Afrikaners rose up against the British backed government of the Union of South Africa when the latter declared war on Germany during the First World War. For his role in the rebellion Jopie Fourie would be the only combatant sentenced to death. This was due to him being an officer of the Active Citizens Force (ACF) and not having resigned his commission by the time the rebellion broke out. Fourie’s death would prove a divisive event in Afrikaner politics and serve as a potent conduit in the rise of Afrikaner nationalism, with Fourie being hailed as an Afrikaner hero.

Hierdie film handel oor die laaste dae van kommandant Josef Johannes “Jopie” Fourie (27 Augustus 1879 – 20 Desember 1914), ‘n Boere-oorlog veteraan en een van die leiers van die 1914 Afrikaner Rebellie. Die 1914-rebellie het uitgebreek toe ontevrede Boere/Afrikaners teen die Britse gesteunde regering van die Unie van Suid-Afrika opgestaan het gedurende die Eerste Wêreldoorlog. Vir sy rol in die opstand het Jopie Fourie die doodsvonnis ontvang. Fourie se dood was ‘n verdelende gebeurtenis in die Afrikaner-politiek en ‘n kragtige skoot in die opkoms van Afrikaner-nasionalisme.



This film tells the story of General Jacobus Herculaas “Koos” de la Rey (22 October 1847 – 15 September 1914), also remembered fondly as the “Lion of the West”. General de la Rey was a Boer general, member of the Volksraad, member of the Transvaal parliament, delegate to the National Convention, and Senator. One of the fiercest guerrilla fighters during the war, General de la Rey is also remembered for his opposition to the Anglo-Boer War, yet when war became a reality he committed himself fully to the republican cause where he conducted a brilliant campaign against the British. His enemies would also remember him as one of the most chivalrous generals during the unfortunate conflict. This film however also touches upon his death – tragic, unexpected, and just as a new rebellion was stirring in the republican midst.

Hierdie film vertel die verhaal van Generaal Jacobus Herculaas “Koos” de la Rey (22 Oktober 1847 – 15 September 1914), ook bekend as die “Leeu van die Wes-Transvaal” . Generaal De la Rey was ‘n Boeregeneraal, lid van die Volksraad, lid van die Transvaalse Parlement, afgevaardigde na die Nasionale Konvensie, en Senator. Een van die felste guerrillavegters tydens die oorlog, word generaal de la Rey ook onthou vir sy teenkanting teen die Anglo-Boereoorlog; maar wanneer die oorlog onstuitbaar geword het het hy hom ten volle tot die Republikeinse saak verbind waar hy ‘n briljante veldtog teen die Britte gevoer het. Sy vyande het hom ook onthou as een van die mees ridderlike generaals tydens die ongelukkige konflik. Hierdie film raak egter ook aan sy dood – tragies, onverwags, en net toe ‘n nuwe rebellie in die Republikeinse midde begin roer.



This film examines the controversial life of Commandant Gideon Scheepers (1878 – 1902), a Boer War military leader. Captured by British forces in 1901, Commandant Scheepers would be hauled in front of a military tribunal which refused to acknowledge his rank and found him guilty of various war crimes based on dubious witness accounts. Based on the suspicious testimony Scheepers was sentenced to death and on 18 January 1902 was blindfolded, tied to a chair, and shot by a British firing squad. The British would go on to bury him in an unmarked grave, largely out of fears that the Boer republican forces would turn him into a hero, and his grave a site of pilgrimage. His parents, Johannes and Sophia Scheepers, would search for their son’s grave till they themselves died and were buried (Johannes in 1934 and Sophia in 1956).

Hierdie film ondersoek die omstrede lewe van Kommandant Gideon Scheepers (1878 – 1902), ‘n Boere-oorlog militêre leier. Kommandant Scheepers was deur Britse magte in 1901 gevang en voor ‘n militêre tribunaal gesleep wat sy rang misken het en hom verder aan verskeie oorlogsmisdade skuldig bevind het – grootliks as gevolg van twyfelagtige getuienis. Gebaseer op die verdagte getuienis is Scheepers tot die dood gevonnis en op 18 Januarie 1902 is hy geblinddoek, vasgebind aan ‘n stoel, en geskiet deur ‘n Britse vuurpeloton. Die Britte het hom in ‘n ongemerkte graf begrawe, grootliks uit vrees dat die Boere hom ‘n held sou maak – en sy graf ‘n plek van pelgrimstog. Sy ouers, Johannes en Sophia Scheepers, sou na hul seun se graf soek totdat hulle hulself dood en begrawe is (Johannes in 1934 en Sophia in 1956).

ANGOLA THE WAR Documentary Teaser

A faraway war, A clash of ideologies And some of the biggest battles fought on African soil since World War Two. For twenty-three years, five western nations, members of the Soviet bloc and two superpowers were locked into a war never formally declared. The South African Defence Force and the CIA backed UNITA pitted against communist Angolans, SWAPO, Cubans, and Russians. It all began in 1966. Once the Draft started, every able-bodied white South African male was called up for service; they were joined by the famed 32 Battalion, composed mainly of black FNLA veterans. They were forced to adapt, both physically and emotionally. It was a call that most answered. This was the Cold War played out on a third-world battleground. Where the skies of Angola were once the most hostile airspace in the world and Rules of engagement in this war were murky, complicated and secretive and who won it, remains fiercely contested even to this day. But a hard-won peace was eventually victorious. This is the story of the violent journey to get there. Many lost their lives. Emotional scars and lasting vivid memories remain.
