The Other Man: F.W. de Klerk and the End of Apartheid

Rated NR 75 min. 2015

Frederik Willem de Klerk was the president of the South African apartheid regime, and as such, he was at least morally responsible for the state's human rights violations. However, he made an about face by facilitating the release of Nelson Mandela. Through interviews with high-level key figures and de Klerk himself, we observe the complex events that took place in the early 1990s in South Africa that marked the end of apartheid, echoing the fall of the Berlin Wall and the end of communism in Europe. Ultimately, we are encouraged to reconsider de Klerk's actions.
