The Other Man( Visual )

4 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It could have been a bloodbath of historic proportions. But instead, one man made the end of apartheid possible: in February 1990, President F.W. de Klerk lifted the ban on the African National Congress and ordered the release of Nelson Mandela. As the world celebrated, Mandela would go on to become South Africa's first democratically elected president -- with de Klerk as his Vice President. But de Klerk's history is complicated. Before becoming president, he was a virulent defender of white Africans and their privileges, and helped lead the policy of 'Total Onslaught, Total Strategy' against ANC activists. And his own term as president was marred by violence, often at the hands of his own security forces. What pushed this man to reverse his beliefs and jumpstart the process of making South Africa a more equal and just nation? Featuring in-depth interviews with de Klerk himself, former president Thabo Mbeki, anti-apartheid activists Father Michael Lapsley and Mathews Phosa, Yasmin Sooka (of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission), Richard Goldstone (who headed the Goldstone Commission investigations into political violence) and many others, filmmaker Nic Rossier explores the fascinating political journey and legacy of this complex figure"--Container

Forgiveness : a time to love & a time to hate( Visual )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This layered film by acclaimed filmmaker Helen Whitney addresses the act of forgiveness, which is a theological principle central to all major religions, but is more and more frequently leaving the church, synagogue and mosque and hitting the fractious streets. Inevitably its new role in the world raises serious and complex questions: why is forgiveness in the air today; what is its power, and what are its limitations and in some instances its dangers; has it been cheapened or deepened ... or both? Forgiveness: A Time to Love and a Time to Hate seeks to shed insight into the light and darkness - the presence and absence - of forgiveness. The film covers a wide range of stories from personal betrayal to genocide. Among them: the spontaneous demonstration of forgiveness following the 2006 shooting of Amish children in Nickel Mines, Pennsylvania; a savage and senseless attack on two young female campers; the struggle of a '60s radical to cope with the consequences of a violent act of protest that turned deadly; the shattering of a family after the mother abandons her husband and children; the penitential journey of modern Germany, coming to terms with the Holocaust; and stories of survivors of the Rwandan genocide"--Container

Redeeming the past : my journey from freedom fighter to healer by Michael Lapsley( Book )

4 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in Japanese and English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1990, Fr. Michael Lapsley, an Anglican priest and monastic from New Zealand, exiled to Zimbabwe because of his anti-apartheid work in South Africa, opened a package and was immediately struck by the blast of an explosion. The bomb suspected to be the work of the apartheid-era South African secret police blasted away both his hands and one of his eyes. His memoir tells the story of this horrendous event, backing up to recount the journey that led him there particularly his rising awareness of the radical social implications of the gospel and his identification with the liberation struggle and then the subsequent journey of the last two decades. Returning to South Africa, Lapsley saw a whole nation damaged by the apartheid era. So he discovered his new vocation to become a wounded healer, drawing on his own experience to promote the healing of other victims of violence and trauma. As he writes, My visible brokenness creates a bond with others whose brokenness is often less visible but just as real. The truth is that pain unites human beings. In my work as a healer, many people say they can trust me because I know pain. In the end, though, what matters most is whether we are able to transform pain into a life-giving force. --AMAZON.COM BOOK DESCRIPTION

Born in New Zealand in 1949, Alan Michael Lapsley was ordained an Anglican Church priest in 1973, joining the religious order of the Society of the Sacred Mission (SSM). Father Michael, as he is called, was sent to South Africa at the height of apartheid and his life was changed forever. His involvement in opposition to apartheid and support for the liberation struggle forced him to move to Zimbabwe where in 1990 he suffered serious injuries from a letter bomb. Since that time he established the Institute for Healing of Memories in Cape Town. At the beginning it worked with South Africans to help them tell their stories and work through their trauma. Since then this Institute assists people across the world who have been victims of unrest and political violence
