His Big White Self

Nick Broomfield
J.P. MeyerAnita Meyer Eugene Terre'Blanche
The final days of apartheid in South Africa led to the nominal defeat of the extreme white right as the African National Congress (ANC) came to power. Nick Broomfield's 2006 documentary is his second portrait of Neo-Nazi AWB Afrikaner Party leader Eugene Terre'Blanche (following 1991's The Leader, His Driver and the Driver's Wife), which exposes the lingering impact of his regime's stark and sobering policies. Broomfield revisits those broken and brought down by the rise of democracy, confronting the unrepentant Terre'Blanche in a manner that is not only extremely tense but also hilarious and unforgettable.
