  BBC NEWS | World | Africa | Profile: Eugene Terreblanche
Claiming on occasion to be a cultural organisation - albeit one with sidearms and paramilitary uniforms - Terreblanche and his men promised to fight for the survival of the white tribe of Africa.
Terreblanche's thunderous voice and magnificent style of delivery - alternating between roar and husky whisper, with gestures to match - helped to disguise the complete meaninglessness of what he was saying.
Terreblanche's conviction and jail sentence for assault provide the proof that he was a man capable of considerable cruelty.

TerreBlanche has reason to fear reprisals – not only from fl inmates, but also from Afrikaner foot soldiers who did TerreBlanche’s dirty work and who resent him for not owning up to his alleged role in the crimes.

 His Big White Self (2006) (TV)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Eugene Terreblanche's AWB, a neo-Nazi militia army, was deplored by such commentators: but also used by them (and consequently talked up) to justify the continued existence of the apartheid state.
The resulting film ('The Leader, the Driver, and the Driver's Wife') made Broomfield's reputation, and arguably was the beginning of the end for Terreblanche's: he began a slow (and violent) descent to ridicule and ultimately prison.
There's far less journalistic justification for this sequel, shot on Terreblance's release from prison (especially as Terreblanche, out on parole, was legally prohibited from giving political interviews during the period when Broomfield was trying to film him).

In 1991, veteran director Nick Broomfield made documentary history when he traveled to South Africa to interview Eugene Terreblanche, the leader of the South African neo-Nazi party (called the AWB) whose activities were directly responsible for countless acts of violence and death.
Terreblanche was eventually imprisoned for the crimes that he and his party committed.

Terreblanche was not an easy subject and often disparaged and shooed away Broomfield during filming.
Similarly, as Broomfield works hard to secure an interview with Terreblanche, ultimately employing a ruse to do so, the narrative gives too much emphasis on this mission, as if Terreblanche is some sort of sought-after rock star.
Maybe he can be a joke to a visiting filmmaker or to foreign audiences but it is not clear that in a country where the Black majority smolders in poverty, and crime is spiraling upward, that Terreblanche and the White supremacists he represents are a joke to the people of South Africa.

Broomfield made no bones about showing what a monster the man was, but by directing the camera at Terreblanche's driver JP and his wife Anita, he also made the subtle point that people with abhorrent racist views are human too.
Terreblanche meanwhile is even more of a revelation.

Seen as one of Nick Broomfield's best films, The Leader is one of his first using the documentary style where the story is as much about his quest to get close to the subject as it is about the subject itself.
For example, when an interview with Terreblanche is finally granted, Broomfield deliberately arrives late and explains his tardiness by saying he'd stopped for tea.
