Lamentations of Judas

Boris Gerrets / NL, 2020 / 96 min.

Angolan soldiers known as ‘The Terrible Ones’ once fought white South Africa’s colonial wars. Left behind on the edge of the Kalahari desert, the remaining veteran combatants are the key figures in this film on guilt, betrayal and free will. Filmmaker Boris Gerrets opens old wounds in a bid for redemption.
