Long Night’s Journey Into Day

April 02, 2000 | 94 minutes
Directed by: Deborah Hoffmann, Frances Reid | Written by: Deborah Hoffmann, Frances Reid
For over forty years, South Africa was governed by the most notorious form of racial domination since Nazi Germany. When it finally collapsed, those who had enforced apartheid's rule wanted amnesty for their crimes. Their victims wanted justice. As a compromise, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) was formed. As it investigated the crimes of apartheid, the Commission brought together victims and perpetrators to relive South Africa's brutal history. By revealing the past instead of burying it, the TRC hoped to pave the way to a peaceful future. Narrated by Helen Mirren.
Cast: Helen Mirren (Narrator), Mary Burton, Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela, Mongezi Manqina, Thapelo Mbelo, Robert McBride, Jann Turner, Desmond Tutu, Tony Weaver, Glenda Wildschut
