Where Forgiveness is not in the saying, it’s in the doing
This film is produced by Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela and directed by Mark J Kaplan.
On Christmas Eve in 1996 a group of young extremists, affiliated with the Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging Webblad (AWB), planted four bombs in a shopping centre in the small town of Worcester. Two of the bombs detonated killing four people and injuring 67 others. Now a new documentary called Black Christmas will tell the story of forgiveness and reconciliation.
"The film documents the story of Stefaans Coetzee reaching out to the Worcester community and engaging on the journey of seeking forgiveness, and the process of the Worcester community getting to know the perpetrator and what motivated him to do it."
This will be followed by a panel discussion.
