Summary
Winner of a Peabody Award, SOFT VENGEANCE is a film about Albie Sachs, a lawyer, writer, art lover and freedom fighter set against the dramatic events leading to the overthrow of the apartheid regime in South Africa.. As a young lawyer, Albie defended those committed to ending apartheid. For his actions, he was imprisoned in solitary confinement in Cape Town, tortured through sleep deprivation and forced into exile. In 1988, he was blown up by a car bomb set by the South African security forces in Maputo, Mozambique but miraculously he survived and after a long year of rehabilitation in England, recovered.. Returning to South Africa following the release of Nelson Mandela, Albie helped write the new Constitution and was then appointed as one of the first 11 judges to the new Constitutional Court, which for the past 23 years has been insuring that the rights of all South Africans are afforded protection. His decision upholding the right to same sex marriage has become a model world-wide. At its core, this is a film about reconciliation not retribution, about putting faith in law, fairness and humanity and renouncing torture, punishment and recrimination.. "An emotive film that recognizes the power and endurance of the human spirit at its best." - The Guardian (UK)
