NATIONAL FILM TOUR:"Roadmap to Apartheid" (5-11 March)

01 March 2012
Dear Friends,

The Tri-Continental Film Festival (www.tcff.org.za), IAW South Africa Team and BDS South Africa have secured permission to premiere the film, Roadmap to Apartheid (www.roadmaptoapartheid.org). The movie will be screened from 5 to 11 March at several South African universities, schools and community centers as one of the official 2012 Israeli Apartheid Week events (see below for schedule). 'Roadmap to Apartheid' is a full-feature film that explores the comparison between former South Africa and current Israel.

'Roadmap to Apartheid' involves some interesting personalities: Ana Nougeira (a South African woman) and Eron Davison (born in Israel but now living in USA) are the directors, and Alice Walker (the acclaimed author of, "The Color Purple") is the narrator. The movie also features never seen before interviews with people such as the legendary sports boycott organizer, Dennis Brutus and the former SA Council of Churches General Secretary, Eddie Makue.

Archbishop Desmond Tutu has seen the film, and commented: "Roadmap To Apartheid is very powerful and compelling, and the visuals of house demolitions are appalling.  Religion is repeatedly misused by politicians. One of the lessons of Jewish history is that God is always on the side of the oppressed.  Another is that those who dehumanise others, dehumanise themselves."
