Civilization on Trial

by Michael SCOTT

CIVILISATION_Shantytown005
CIVILISATION_Shantytown006

A rough but powerful film made by anti-apartheid crusader, Rev. Michael Scott, this is the first anti-apartheid documentary.

The purpose of the film was clearly to generate international support for dealing with the plight of the African and Indian population in South Africa and South West Africa. Indeed, the very title, Civilization on Trial is a direct take-off of Arnold Toynbee’s influential 1948 book of the same title.
