Reality/Doc (TV) — seven of nine Productions Details
1/11 – 12/12

A 93-minute investigative documentary that I produced, directed, edited and wrote under the banner of my production company, Seven of nine Productions. In post-Apartheid South Africa, some say it’s more dangerous to be a farmer than a policeman. In the 20 years since the transition from apartheid to democracy, an alarming phenomenon has been sweeping the country's farmlands: more than 3000 white farmers have been brutally murdered. How has South Africa come to this point and what can be done about it.
