In conjunction with its exhibition “Why Are They Weeping? South Africans Under Apartheid,” the DuSable Museum of African-American History presents a series of films running through next weekend. The Tuesday program consists of three documentaries, Generations of Resistance, South African Essay—Part 2 (about apartheid), and The Africans—Soweto—The Secret City. The Wednesday program includes an hour-long adaptation of a Nadine Gordimer story, Good Climate, Friendly Inhabitants, and two documentaries about apartheid, Katutura and South African Essay—The Fruit of Fear. The Thursday program includes two films that focus on South African women—You Have Struck a Rock, on the women’s resistance movement, and South Africa Belongs to Us: Five Portraits of Women—as well as the clandestinely filmed portrait of racial inequality Last Grave at Dimbaza.
