“Ethnic film in South Africa: history, meaning and change”

This paper provides an overview of ethnic films in South Africa. It traces the historical development of ‘national’ and ‘ethnic’ cinema in the context of apartheid where creative and financial control of filmmaking was controlled by the state and white individuals who acted as surrogates of the state. The paper interrogates the extent to which the ‘ethnic film’ category can be applied to film productions that represented an inauthentic African worldview, culture and tradition. It further argues that the categories of national and ethnic have shifted since the democratic elections of 1994 and in the post-1994 context, sectors of the Afrikaans-language film industry have now moved to the margins in what can be described as an ‘inward migration’. In the process, these films have become decentred and detached from the ‘national’ industry and are now arguably the new ‘ethnic’ cinema in South Africa.
