To the editors:

During the past few weeks, the "Reader's Guide to the Silver Screen" has run both a mini-review of and an advertisement for the movie The Gods Must Be Crazy II. However, neither mentions a very important detail: like the original The Gods Must Be Crazy, this movie was made in South Africa and should therefore be boycotted. Mandela is out of prison, but apartheid still remains in force; until it falls, we must keep the pressure on, by maintaining the economic boycott of South African products.
