ANSWER


The interviewee, Bruins Peterson, was a long time family friend to my grand father during when he was staying in South Africa. Having introduced the main aim of my task, the interviewee started responding sequentially to my questions. In response to the first interview question, Bruins explained that before 1960, he was able to watch films. However, he says that this could only happen under strict supervision from the European community, which by then was very tough on them (Africans) with apartheid governance. From the city of Johannesburg, he was able to see less number of African movies compared to American movies. In the African movies, the interviewee confessed that films like British-Zulu war, Boetie gaan border toe; winter van 14 Julie, Sarie Marais, Kom Sam Vanaand, African Jim and Africa come back were the most common films that dominated his era.
