Encounters Through Film

A South African Gem of a Doc

An unusual, poetic and much-honored documentary on the Truth and Reconciliation Commission hearings by South African filmmaker Liza Key will have its American premiere at the New School on Thursday, November 3 at 6 PM, Tishman Auditorium, 66 West 12th Street.  Rewind evokes the moral and emotional impact of the hearings through the prism of composer Philip Miller’s creation of a cantata and its performance that marked the 10th anniversary of the TRC, interwoven with interviews and archival imagery. Thursday’s screening anticipates the upcoming centennial of the founding of the African National Congress. Admission Free, but first come first served.
