He sees the film as 'a slice of life - a few weeks in the life of an irresponsible black man (a petty gangster) who becomes caught up in a political drama by accident'. Mapantsula deals with the everyday black experience of apartheid. Matewan (1987) in dealing with the exploitation of labour in West Virginian mines, is set relatively safely in the past (the twenties) and draws upon the mythos of the Western but maintains a focus on the political issue of the need for collective action against exploitation11ocn179748698file20010.47Mapantsula11ocn317345214visu19880.10MapantsulaAn anti-Apartheid film from South Africa whose central character, a petty crook from Soweto is drawn into the cause against racism.
