Soft Vengeance follows South African lawyer, writer, art lover, and freedom fighter Albie Sachs, who challenged racial apartheid and later returned as one of the principal architects of South Africa’s non-racial and non-sexist post-apartheid Constitution. As a young man, Sachs defended those committed to ending apartheid in South Africa, actions for which he was imprisoned, tortured, and forced into exile. The film beautifully and movingly catalogs Sachs’ efforts to achieve democracy, freedom, and the rule of law in South Africa. (2K DCP Presentation)
