Fruits of Fear. Ngozi Onwurah. 1990.
“Every time you buy a Cape apple you’re buying a bullet to kill our people.” This is a documentary short with a simple message: Boycott South Africa Now. (I.e., in 1990.)
While the message is clear, I’m surprised at how fairly they present Thatcher’s point of view: We do get to hear her full er line of reasoning before it’s rebutted.
“Just don’t buy those apples.”
