The Creatively Speaking Series, curated by Michelle Materre and Neyda Martinez, presents films that speak to the wide-ranging experiences of people of color across the Diaspora. This film reveals that the most explosive issue in a post-Apartheid South Africa remains the ownership of the land. The film follows two black communities as they struggle to reclaim land from white owners amid rising racial tensions and wavering government policies. As Promised Land shows, the land issue remains South Africa's "ticking time bomb," with far-reaching consequences for all sides. A co-production of the National Black Programming Consortium, American Documentary/POV and the Diverse Voices Project.
