Synopsis:

Filmed on location, An African Dream stars John Kani as a black African resident of the early 20th century who spends several years in England. Having received a "proper" white man's education, he returns to his homeland as a teacher.

While his illusions about bridging the gap between the white and black populations in Africa are doomed to failure, he finds a unexpected kindred spirit in the form of Kitty Aldridge. A white resident of a recently established British colony, Kitty is attracted to the idealistic Kani, and he to her. That their relationship fosters resentment from others is indicated by the "PG for violence" rating bestowed upon An African Dream.

A young teacher, Katherine Armstrong, joins her fiance in Cradock, South Africa, venturing into the unspoiled beauty of the African landscape. But the perfection of her new-found love for husband and country is soon displaced by the pity and anger she feels for the natives, abused by her fellow countrymen.

An unknown, but competent cast of actors, bring a special appeal to this rather run-of-the-mill allegedly true story of an Englishwoman who moves to South Africa in 1906. She quickly becomes disillusioned by the way in which blacks are treated and cheated by the white rulers, and is well ahead of her time by refusing to take her place as a nonentity in the hierarchy of the de facto white aristocracy farmer class. Her naive orientation toward fairness upsets the status quo, and creates problems for her and for those she cares about.

This is a great true drama about an early 1900's aristocratic Englishwoman in South Africa who becomes disillusioned about the mistreatment of blacks there and became the subject of harassment and threats from her white peers. It's a must see!!
