FORGOTTEN TIMES


Two cousins from the Orange Free State grow up together in South Africa of the 1960s to '90s. Frensch de Wet and Arnie Bremer are born into conservative Afrikaner families.

Frensch readily accepts the life of conservative power and privilege to which he feels entitled. However, Arnie's father is tragically killed when he is ten. As he grows up under difficult circumstances, his experiences lead him to question the norms, traditions and morals that bind him to the System. Frensch and Arnie, from their childhood through to their national service, emerge to represent two diametrically opposing views on life while facing a future that culminates in bitter conflict and tragedy for their families and the country.

Entering adulthood, the cousins finally break with each other when confronted by the realities of the escalating threat posed to the Establishment by the liberation struggle. Frensch and Arnie find themselves on opposite sides of a new divide that splits white conservatives on how best to counter the threat.

But, 'Forgotten Times' essentially tells the story of the lives of two men who, as they enter adulthood, develop strong individual personalities that react in different ways to their environment and to each other during the violent conflict of those forgotten times - a turbulent period of South Africa's unwritten history.

Amidst this relentless feud and internecine strife, a long-kept secret emerges that brings a poignant, unexpected conclusion to the tale of bitter interpersonal rivalry and tragedy in a breathtaking climax.
