SOFT VENGEANCE: ALBIE SACHS AND THE NEW SOUTH AFRICA

Showtimes

NYC PREMIERE At the height of apartheid, noted South African activist, author and attorney Albie Sachs was driven into exile, yet still faced threats to his life that cost him dearly. Rather than exchange violence for violence, his revenge took on the form of hope: drafting the nation’s new, inclusive constitution. A powerful testament to the search for truth and reconciliation that marked post-apartheid South Africa, Abby Ginzburg’s portrait of Sachs distills the nation’s turbulent history in the story of one man.

This screening is co-presented by Human Rights Watch  &  The Nation.
