Anti-apartheid film comes to Cardiff

A FILM about how the world fought against apartheid in South Africa will be screened in Cardiff on Monday, followed by a Q&A with the film’s producer.

One Humanity tells the story of the Nelson Mandela birthday tribute concert on the BBC in 1988 and the focus it placed on the global anti-apartheid movement and will be shown at Chapter Arts Centre on Monday.

The screening will be followed by a special panel discussion with the film’s producer, Tony Hollingsworth, a key world figure in the use of popular culture as a campaign tool for causes.

His productions have profiled important issues and raised over $21 million causes including Amnesty International, the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, Red Cross, the anti-apartheid movement and children’s charities in Southern Africa, India and Mexico.

The screening is part of Chapter’s wider Conflict season, a long-running season of films looking at the modern battlegrounds of democracy and freedom and the ongoing impact of the First World War.

Stephen Phillips, cinema programme officer at Chapter, said: “We are delighted to be able to screen One Humanity as part of our Impact of Conflict season, examining the complex and ongoing socio-political impact of the First World War.

“The film focuses on the inspiring international solidarity movement mobilised to end the toxic apartheid regime.

“It’s incredibly valuable to be able to examine such a watershed moment in racial relations and South African history as part of a wider dialogue about conflict and resolution in an increasingly globalised age.”

The screening will take place at Chapter Arts Centre, Canton, at 6pm on Monday. Tickets range from £5.10 to £7.20.
