n African Journal of Psychiatry - Roepman : movie review




It is very seldom that one comes across a South African film that speaks to you on so many levels, but here is such a film. Based on the book by Jan van Tonder with the same name, the film Roepman (The Call-man) is set in the South Africa of 1966, when the country was in the firm grip of the Afrikaans, mainly Dutch Reformed Church and the Verwoerd Apartheid-Government. The story of Roepman deals with an Afrikaans, white, railway community and the unique and often challenging issues of the then Afrikaans culture and psyche.
