It will not be easy for them to find their place in society again. Charlie dreams of opening a club, Thabo has to patch up his relationship with his wife and son and Peter continues to work in the Party and investigate the traitors of the ANC.

The bag on my back( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the course of roughly one decade, Zimbabwe’s land reform policies have succeeded in effectively turning a once flourishing economy into ruins and driven out 3 million Zimbabweans across the country’s borders in search of better living conditions. In a wholly African story, filmmaker Tapiwa Chipfupa — daughter of a black Agricultural Estate Manager gradually driven into bankruptcy (and ultimately into economic exile) by a series of government decisions — looks back on the events that forced her middle class family of seven to dissolve and scatter throughout the world. Sifting idyllic memories of farm life in the Mashonaland provinces through the harsh perspective offered by life in exile, MEMOIRS FROM EXIL proposes a case study on how political decisions enforced by un-democratic regimes radically alter the personal destinies of individuals

Tikhatsi setijikile( Visual )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Family planning and child spacing have always been a part of Swazi culture. A wife's health and the ability to flee with all of the children in the family during a war in the olden days determined how the family was spaced. Today it's due to the economic capabilities of the husband and wife to feed, clothe and educate their children that determines child spacing. This video highlights the various "modern" family planning methods that are available and appeals for the participation of both parties in selecting the most appropriate method for their lifestyle."--Container

Freedom is a personal journey( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This documentary focuses on two women who landed in prison for very different reasons and who, through their experiences, evolved their own views on what freedom really means. The first is Miriam Benjamin, the filmmaker's aunt, who left home when she was seventeen and more or less wandered into a life of petty crime. A gay woman with a decidedly imposing demeanor, she somehow managed to live her own life while serving a six-and-half year sentence. The other is Gertrude Fester, a political activist from an early age, who was one of the people charged during the so-called Rainbow Trial and who subsequently served the government in various capacities, most recently as a Commissioner on Gender Equality. They take turns in relating their stories and, without going into much personal detail, explain how incarceration shaped their lives and forced them to find a way to create their own freedom. The film combines their comments with partial re-enactments
