Catch a Fire
Anothe one bites the dust!
Partially based on true events, this story is set in the Apartheid-era South Africa. In essence the tale of two men, one a black foreman at a chemical plant, the other a police interrogator, who end up on opposite sides when the black is suspected of causing a blast at the factory. Eventually he is released, but is so upset at the treatment he received from the police that he joins the ANC underground movement and starts training for explosives work. The cop, meanwhile, is still after him, trying to prevent him from doing anything dangerous.

|Comments||This is the true story of Patrick Chummaso, a terrorist freedom fighter in South Africa in 1980. The theme is very disturbing and shocking. The focus is on the human rights violations inflicted by the security forces on suspects, showing how they were humiliated and tortured and physically and psychologically abused. Emotionally disturbing, the movie is not for sensitive viewers.|
