Storyline

A film about an AGreat, underwatched film. Dingaka

Stanley Baker was a vastly underrated actor. This film about a barrister faced with the task of defending a murderer who within his own cultural framework is hardly committing murder, is gripping, poignant and thoughtful Based on the days of apartheid in South Africa, Baker defends a man who took revenge on a man who killed one of his children to enhance his prowess as a stick fighter. The peek into the violent world of the Xhosa is very well done and the attack created by Baker in defense of his client is excellent. This is an excellent film, undershown and underseen. If you have the chance to see it, do so. You will be informed as well as entertained by this engaging tale based on actual cases (Yes. There were several of these revenge killings based on witchcraft that appeared in South African courts).

Uys’s best Dingaka

Dingaka What is this movie about? Depends on what you are looking for. It is about the disastrous situation of Blacks in Apartheid South Africa, with con men, murderers, and an unjust, broken legal system.

But it is also about one man’s (Ntuku Makwena, played by Ken Gampu) personal journey from revenge to redemption. A man faced with the ultimate injustice: his God has forbidden him to call his daughter’s murderer to account. Or at least, so says the tribal priest who is eventually revealed as the murderer. Ntuku’s solution is as fine as Huck Finn’s decision to save his friend Jim, even if it means going to Hell. That scene of realization, and the confrontation that follows, are my favorite scenes in all film.”I will do right, though the Gods slay me.”
