The press release says California Newsreel's Southern Africa Media Center is happy to announce the release of a new and important film, CROSSROADS/SOUTH AFRICA, which offers unprecedented insights into the daily drama that constitutes black life under apartheid; CROSSROADS/SOUTH AFRICA immerses itself in the story of Crossroads, a squatter's community on the edge of Capetown. The press release says because of its dramatic quality and unique view of the rebellion of daily life in South Africa, CROSSROADS/SOUTH AFRICA can be used to greatly broaden anti-apartheid sentiment in this country. The press release says CROSSROADS/SOUTH AFRICA was produced and directed by Jonathan Wacks. The press release includes excerpts of film reviews from the Los Angeles Times and Los Angeles Herald-Examiner. [The correct spelling is Cape Town.]
