Trivia & Production Notes

  • Based on the true story and play by Michael Ashton.
  • A STATEMENT FROM ARCHBISHOP EMERITUS DESMOND TUTU: This timely, compelling and intelligent film, movingly, and above all humanely, captures what it felt like to be working with those selfless members of the TRC who strove, often against the odds, to help bring both truth and reconciliation to the ordinary people of South Africa. The film is a tribute to the remarkable and healing power of forgiveness and the outstanding compassion and courage of those who offered love and forgiveness as an antidote to hate and inhumanity. This is not only a film about a certain time and place, it is a pean of hope to humanity at large.
Also Known As
  • The Archbishop and the Antichrist
