Reconciliation

89 min - South Africa, USA Michael Wilson

The documentary details the events that lead up to what South African's have coined 'Mandela's miracle,' a strategy that prevented a bloodbath and shepherded in a peaceful transition from apartheid to a democracy. It is driven by the notion that even the most terrible tyranny can be overcome through reconciliation, as both the oppressed and the oppressors need to be liberated from the vice-grip of blind prejudice and injustice. The film also explores the perspective of peacemakers who brought about the creation of the Rainbow Nation: Desmond Tutu, FW de Klerk, Ahmed Kathrada, Zindzi Mandela and many more. In addition, the film makers visit Clint Eastwood on the set on Invictus, a film that to show how President Mandela unites South Africa when it hosts the 1995 Rugby World Cup.
