The Boers at the end of the world film screening
In a remote stretch of Patagonia, Argentina, there is, unbelievably, a 100- year-old community that speaks Afrikaans. After the destruction of the war against the British, these Boers sailed across the ocean to start a new life. This award-winning documentary is a portrait of the last days of the community and one family’s efforts to reconnect with South Africa. More info on the Facebook event page. Read our interview with the director here.
