‘Roadmap to Apartheid’ (2012) + discussion with Sarah Colborne, director of PSC

Tuesday 29th April

An exploration of the analogy of Apartheid in Israel/Palestine

Roadmap-To-Apartheid_ART-610x250

Directed by South African-born Ana Nogueira and Israeli-born Eron Davidson.

This film is both an astute work of political analysis and a gripping historical account of the human cost of regimes of ethnic separation. In ‘Roadmap to Apartheid‘ striking parallels emerge in accounts of  the rise and implementation of the Apartheid system in South Africa and the systematic segregation and oppression of Palestinians in Israel.   Narrated by Alice Walker (author of The Color Purple), the film interweaves archive footage from  South Africa and Israel/Palestine, with interviewees from both countries considering why the Apartheid analogy is so important for understanding the Israeli context. While the film presents a stark picture of the present within Israel and the territories it controls, it also offers hope by looking to the peace that South Africa eventually found.  Timely and powerful.

Followed by a discussion with PSC director, Sarah Colborne.
