One of the few movies about Swaziland is a documentary called "Without the King." You won’t be able to find the film in Swaziland, though, as it is critical of the King and that usually doesn’t go over well. Rumors in Swaziland would suggest that one of the princesses’ boyfriends took most of the footage and tried to blackmail the King into paying him a huge sum of money in order not to release the footage. The rumor continues that when the King refused, the footage was sold to some documentarians. Whather or not this is true, the film is worth seeing, even if it does paint an overly dire and volatile portrait of Swaziland.
