Meeting Room 302
Thursday, Sep 3, 6:30pm to 8:45pm

"With this bracing drama made at the climax of the anti-apartheid movement director Euzhan Palcy issued a devastating indict�ment of South Africa�s racist government�and made history in the process becoming the first black woman to direct a Hollywood studio film. White schoolteacher Ben Du Toit lives in Johannesburg and remains blissfully incurious about the lives of his black countrymen until a wave of brutal treatment comes crashing down on his gardener bringing Du Toit face-to-face with harsh political realities" (Criterion).
