This Land is a film by Miki Redelinghuys, which examines rural residents’ struggle for land rights and accountability on communal land.

In Makhasaneni, a hamlet in rural KwaZulu-Natal, scores of villagers are under threat of forced removal for the second time in as many generations. Forcibly moved here by the apartheid government, now their homes are under threat by a mining company conspiring with the Entembeni Zulu Royal Family, and who seek to exploit the land over the heads of the people who live and work on it. An eloquent portrait of the activists and residents of Makhasaneni, This Land is a brave and necessary exposé of the inadequacy of customary law in a predatory capitalist state. It raises the question, “Is monarchy compatible with democratic land reform?”
