A drama that chronicles the life of Winnie Mandela from her childhood through her marriage and her husband's incarceration.
Based on an incredible true story, SKIN follows Sandra Laing Sophie Okonedo, a distinctly mixed-race South African woman born to white parents Sam Neill and Alice Krige during the apartheid era. Despite her upbringing as a white girl, Sandra is eventually classified as ‘Coloured’ by the government and stripped of the rights with which the rest of her family is privileged. And when she begins a love affair with a local vegetable dealer, Sandra finds herself cut off from her past and living the hard life of a truly black woman in a society that seeks to ostracize her. Harrowing, moving, and ultimately inspiring, SKIN is a story of family, forgiveness, and the triumph of the human spirit.
Catch a Fire
Action and intrigue explode on to the screen in Catch a Fire, the new thriller from the director of Patriot Games and Clear and Present Danger, starring Tim Robbins and Derek Luke.
Few men in history have fought so hard and endured so much in the course of a lifetime as Nelson Mandela. His story is one of struggle and oppression, dignity and hope over despair, self-discipline and respect over persecution and hate. This dramatic story never told before on film -- about a man who came from tribal origins, fled his home to avoid an arranged marriage, was alone and broke at 23, trained as a boxer, and established the first black law firm in South America. From its inception in 1993, the film was to be the only official film biography of Nelson Mandela. Having sanctioned the project, Mandela himself granted unprecedented and exclusive access to the cameras.

In My Country
Set against the backdrop of the South African Truth and Reconciliation hearings, In My Country charts the depths of pain and suffering and the redeeming power of forgiveness and love.

Anna Malan (Juliette Binoche), an Afrikaaner poet and journalist, is enthusiastic, with great hopes of seeing her country healed. Instantly at odds over their opposing views, Langston and Anna are eventually drawn closer through the shared experience of listening to the moving and painful testimony.
