Filmmaker Yoruba Richen tackles the challenging issues of land reform and racial reconciliation in the New South Africa. Promised Land follows two black communitiesÂ that are trying to re-claim land their ancestors were removed from during apartheid.Â Through these two stories an epic battle over land and race is played out with very real consequences for both sides.
Promised Land will have its broadcastÂ premiere on the PBS series P.O.V in 2010.
Screening followed by Q&A with filmmaker Yoruba Richen and a wine and cheese reception.
