From the new South Africa comes this documentary focusing on the struggle of exiled Black Africans to find their place in their country after apartheid. Nothing But the Truth (John Kani, 2008, 78 mins.), which is based on the award-winning, long-running play by director and actor John Kani, explores the complex dynamic between those who risked their lives to remain in South Africa to end apartheid and those who lived in exile to bring attention to the cause. In New Brighton, librarian Sipho Makhaya prepares for the return of his brother's ashes. His brother had gained a reputation as a hero of the anti-apartheid movement while Sipho spent most of his life on the front lines. Homecoming (Norman Maake, 2005, 90 mins.), a film version of the hit mini-series, follows three veteran soldiers of the African National Congress who return to South Africa after years in exile to pick up the pieces of their lives and careers. Charlie wants to open a club; Thabo struggles to reacquaint himself with his wife and family; and Peter remains in politics to uncover the hard truths about those who betrayed the ANC. In English.
