We object: Same shit, different colour

Juliana Venter - 2010-08-27

To whom it may concern

As an Afrikaans-speaking actress having gone through the bad old days of apartheid, I am disappointed to see that it’s same shit, different colour.

I mean really, I want to start producing films from Berlin, where I’m currently living, and start an exchange between Europe and the South African film industry in my own capacity. But why the fuck and how should I do that if I’m confronted with the same old totalitarian thinking the white folks had at home?

Ever heard of evolution, dudes? Of moving on? Of invention?

Ever thought of the fact that South Africa could lead on many levels, as Europe is pretty fucked?

I know the people back home are fantastic. I believe in many of them. I will always believe in the work we put in. And I will not accept the fact that a bunch of power-obsessed dictators want to put us right back where we were: the bad old days of apartheid. Controlled by the government!

So whatever it takes, I’m with the wild bunch. Wiederstand!

In jeder Hinsicht. 

Juliana Venter
