In My Country (Film)

Saturday 10th Aug 2013

In My Country 3As South Africa comes to terms with the legacy of apartheid, their government has created the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, in which the perpetrators of racial violence and injustice must come face to face with their victims if they are to be forgiven for their crimes. Langston (Samuel L. Jackson) is an African-American journalist sent to cover these hearings. He meets Anna (Juliette Binoche), an Afrikaner poet who works for a radio station. After becoming friends, they become romantically involved as they try to come to terms with their feelings about what they’ve learnt.

“A beautiful and important film about South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission. It will engage and influence not only South Africans, but people all over the world concerned with the great questions of human reconciliation, forgiveness, and tolerance.” Nelson Mandela

This film is shown as part of forgiveness awareness leading up to the Forgiveness Conference.
