Boesman & Lena

Based on the play by famed South African dramatist Athol Fugard this minimalist drama examines the anxieties of human existence under a repressive system of government. Danny Glover and Angela Bassett star as a mixed-race couple—"coloreds" under the old Apartheid system—who eke out an existence in a makeshift shelter on the mudflats where they encounter an old Xhosa tribesman, who Boesman abuses as his white masters abuse him. 88 minutes
