WATCH: The Boers at the End of the World


This teaser trailer outlines the lives of the descendants of 600 Boer families who left South Africa in 1908 and moved to a remote region of Patagonia in Argentina. The community stills speaks Afrikaans (45 members to be exact) and embraces the customs of Afrikaner culture despite having never visited South Africa. The world premiere of a shortened version entitled The Last Boers of Patagonia will be held in Cape Town as a part of the Encounters South African Documentary Film Festival at the Labia Theatre on 8 June 2014 at 8pm.
