Director: Gustav Opperman: South Africa, 1989
Record of the "alternative" celebrations of the 150th anniversary of the Great Trek as organised by Groot Trek 150. Thirteen trek groups from different parts of South Africa, including a strong AWB contingent, travelled by ox-wagon to Pretoria. Participants spent the following week at Donkerhoek near Pretoria participating in volk activities, and the celebrations culminated on 16th December with activities in the amphitheatre at Donkerhoek. These included a re-enactment of the Battle of Blood River and speeches by Terreblanche and Treurnicht. Emphasis is on the perception that the Afrikaner nation is once again in danger, and in culminates in an emotional call to retake the land.
