Abstract:

This is the story of the punk band that would change Afrikaner culture forever. For the five best friends, the idea of an Afrikaans punk band called Fokof was a running joke, but it soon became a way to confront all of the questions they had about their conservative Christian upbringing. Finally, drained by three years of touring, and fearing what the band had become, Fokof called it a day. "We're actually not as punk, or as apathetic as you'd like to think we are," Francois said. "We did this to make a positive change, like when parents give a kid a hiding. One sometimes needs a rude awakening." This fly-on-the-wall documentary is as exhilarating as it is insightful. Some content may be objectionable.
