“Black Christmas” is a documentary that shows a perpetrator’s journey of transformation and his expression of remorse for the racially motivated 1996 Christmas Eve bombing in Worcester. The documentary , directed by award-winning film maker Mark Kaplan, deals with the complexity of forgiveness and the question of what the appropriate response to gross human rights violations should be after Apartheid. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion.
This Worcester screening of the documentary “BLACK CHRISTMAS”, jointly hosted by the Khulumani Support Group (Worcester), the Restitution Foundation, the University of Stellenbosch (SUN), the Institute for Justice and Reconciliation (IJR) and Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS) was visited by more than 100 participants from the town of Worcester, mostly from disadvantaged communities.
