This true narrative short film, part memoir, part political thriller won best shorts award in Los Angeles in 2012, garnering 21 awards in all. The story is loosely based on the novel of the same name, written by C. J. Driver ( 828.9685 DRIV and BA 823.91 DRIV) which was banned in South Africa for many years, and uses the experience of underground political action in South Africa during the 1960s. Encouraged by his friend, a young, idealistic journalist joins the African National Congress (ANC) to protest the injustices of apartheid. When their badly organised acts of sabotage turn to murder, their relationship falls apart. The notoriously brutal security police are hot on the trail. After being captured, one of them cooperates with the security police and becomes a witness for the state. The film examines the motives of a group of young white "liberals" who turn to violence to oppose the repressive Nationalist Government and reflects on the notions of betrayal and forgiveness. At the core of this account is one question: Can violence be justified as a way of opposing tyranny? Says, director : " I hope to educate and entertain the audience with questions like these, and explore the divide between left and right, black and white, loyalty and treachery. I grew up in South Africa. I detested apartheid but loved my country. When the "great plan" of apartheid fell to pieces, I set upon stories that exposed social injustice, expressed the inhumanity of authoritarian regimes, and demonstrated human resilience against adversity. Cast: Brian Ames, Michael Enright and Martin Copping who won best actor award for his role of Jeremy James at the 2013 Filmstock Film Festival
