"Rugby can help lead the way to the new South Africa," insists wealthy citrus farmer and rugby club president Espie Ferreira. "If we can get blacks and whites together on the rugby field, the rest will follow automatically."
The second of Christopher Terrill's documentaries about a country on the eve of democracy is entitled Black Men Bite and follows Ferreira's attempts to organise a season of rugby matches between black and white teams.
After years of apartheid, the white players anticipated the worst: some believed that the black players bite in the scrum; others decided to arm their referee and linesman with sidearms. However, despite a history of hatred, the first mixed match to be held in a township finally happened on an uneven field surrounded by barbed wire.
But Ferreira's dream of a brotherhood of rugby was short-lived. Two months into the season Chris Hani, ANC stalwart and negotiator in the forthcoming elections, was assassinated by a white right wing fanatic and the country was once again in a state of anarchy and rebellion.
Executive producer Paul Hamann
