Promised Land looks at the complex issues of South African land reform and racial reconciliation by following two black communities trying to get back land from which they say their ancestors were removed during apartheid. As an outreach tool, the film raises fundamental questions about determining a fair price for justice for a historical wrong and deciding who must pay it. It invites viewers to examine the economic and political fault lines that have made land inequality a “ticking time bomb” that has the potential to destroy the fragile racial compact on which the future of the new South Africa rests.
