Orania (Orig.) / 2012 / Germany / 94 min
Orania is a remote village in the barren centre of South Africa, an ‘intentional community’ where only white Afrikaans people live - a culturally homogeneous place in a multicultural country. What lies beneath this peculiar societal experiment? A feature-length documentary about cultural identity and the thin line between self-determination and discrimination.
