Movie Info

This French-Belgian co-production is set in a remote, squalid South African farm. Jane Birkin stars as Magda, the "proper" farmer's daughter who murders her father (Trevor Howard) when she learns of an affair between him and a local woman (Nadine Uwampa). By rights, Magda should leave for parts unknown at this point. Instead, she becomes obsessively involved in the lives of her father's mistress and her native husband (John Matshikiza). An inevitable second tragedy results. A multiple award winner, Dust was adapted by director Marion Hansel from In the Heart of the Country, a novel by J.M. Cotezee.
