SOFT VENGEANCE: ALBIE SACHS AND THE NEW SOUTH AFRICA

In 1955, the People's Congress declared, "South Africa belongs to all who live in it." SOFT VENGEANCE focuses on Albie Sachs, a leading member of the National Conference in South Africa who was forced into exile for many years. Director Abby Ginzberg recounts Albie's story through personal interviews and historical footage. The film ponders how individuals like Sachs could rebuild the South African nation when it has been so horribly damaged by past events. – SB
