On a private golf estate on January 27, 2015, an upper class White, South African family of five was brutally attacked. Three of them were murdered and two survived: one of which was the eldest son, Henri Van Breda. Two years later, the victim has become the predator: Henri is currently standing trial for murdering his family.
'Estate' is a short, digitally interactive documentary that takes us inside the barbed wire fencing of the private golf estate and scene of the crime. Narrated by Henriā€™s original emergency call, digitally reconstructed images of the golf estate and the surroundings allow us to bear witness to the scene of the crime, raising questions surrounding the source and cause of violence and fear in post-apartheid South Africa.
