This double DVD includes "His Big White Self" and the feature-length prequel 'The Leader, The Driver & The Driver's Wife"
"The Leader..." (1991) Conceived as an instalment of the trailblazing Channel 4 series 'True Stories', Nick Broomfield's frightening and hilarious film exposes the absurd depths of devotion the neo-Nazi Afrikaner Resistance Movement and its leader, Eugene Terre'blanche, inspire in the peoples of Apartheid-ridden South Africa in the early 1990s. In a purposefully ramshackle quest for an interview with the illusive Terre'blanche, Broomfield cajoles, hustles and irritates the svengali-like figure, his driver JP and JP's extraordinarily chipper wife Anita, in a startlingly successful effort to peel back the layers of the regime and its unnervingly congenial membership. 80 mins The result is a taut, gripping and often very funny film which shows the neo-Nazisto be rather less formidable than their well drilled image suggests." Time Out
"His Big White Self" (2006) The aftermath of "The Leader..." was deadly serious for all concerned. The final days of Apartheid led to the nominal defeat of the white right as the ANC came to power. More crucially, Eugene Terre'blanche,facing certain incarceration and national ridicule, had no doubt bid his followers to implement the numerous death and bomb threats that Broomfield was subjected to in the months that followed the film's release in 1991. Never thinking in his worst nightmares that 14 years later he would feel compelled to track down 'His Big White Self'...of course, Broomfield did just that. This new and unmissable film further explores Terre'blanche's absurd yet insidious character, exposing his regime's stark and sobering impact that lingers to this day. Broomfield revisits the familiar and haunted faces of those brought down and broken by democracy's rise in South Africa, finally confronting the newly released and unrepentant Terre'blanche in a manner not only tense but also hilarious and unforgettable. 113 mins
