MOVIES AT THE MUSEUM

"COME BACK, AFRICA," directed by Lionel Rogosin, 1960, NR, 1:35. Rogosin's film is an honest glimpse into the harsh reality of life under the now-abolished South African apartheid government. After witnessing firsthand the terrors of fascism as a soldier in World War II, Rogosin vowed to fight against it wherever and whenever he saw its threats re-emerging. In an effort to expose "what people try to avoid seeing," Rogosin traveled to South Africa and secretly filmed "Come Back, Africa," which revealed the cruelty and injustice with which black South Africans were treated.
