A Drink in the Passage is an English-language film released in 2002. Adapted from a short story by Alan Paton, also the author of Cry, The Beloved Country, this short film is a stark reminder of the inhumanity and indignities of apartheid. A Drink in the Passage is the story of Edward Simelane who is awarded first prize in a national fine arts competition for his remarkable stone sculpture, called Mother and Child. But unbeknownst to him, the competition is for whites only. Nonetheless, the judging panel decides to stick to its decision. In the ensuing national furor, the absurdities of legalised racial discrimination are gently, but tellingly, revealed.
