Directed by Lionel Rogosin | 1959

With Zacharia Mgabi, Vinah Bendile, Miriam Makeba

Filmed covertly on the streets of Johannesburg, South Africa, Lionel Rogosin’s docufiction landmark follows a young Zulu man struggling to provide for his family amid the crushing burden of apartheid. Both a harrowing work of humanist cinema and an unparalleled record of daily life in the black township of Sophiatown—which was soon thereafter demolished to make way for whites-only housing—Come Back, Africa exemplifies the boldly political international cinema that Evergreen Review championed.
