Background story

Carolina, South Africa

An instructor at the Kommandokorps training camp in Carolina, South Africa, demonstrates techniques of gun use. Run by self-proclaimed ‘Colonel’ Franz Jooste, the Kommandokorps  organizes camps during school holidays for young white teenagers, teaching them how to combat a perceived black enemy. Jooste served with the South African Defence Force under the old apartheid regime. He eschews the vision of a multicultural nation, and believes there will be a civil war in South Africa.
