A South African production from Jamie Uys (The Gods Must Be Crazy) tells the story of a tribesman (Ken Gampu). After his daughter is murdered he seeks vengeance by enforcing the eye-for-an-eye tribal law. At his trail a white attorney (Stanley Baker) attempts to defend him.
The movie's soundtrack was written by Bertha Egnos, Eddie Domingo and Basil Gray and has been described as "without a doubt one of the most valuable contributions ever made to the ever-growing library of authentic African music. The songs reflect the colour, the driving rhythm, the vast panorama of sound and music which add up to what novelist Stuart Cloete once described as being ‘the song of Africa….the song no white man will ever sing’.” Read more https://soulsafari.wordpress.com/2010/05/31/ost-dingaka-by-bertha-egnos-1965-sa-movies/
