      IUPUI is hosting a series of South African films this spring. The films are
      FREE and will be shown in the Lilly Auditorium on the lower level of the IUPUI
      library. Here's the line-up:

      South Africa On Film
      An IUPUI Public Film Series
      Organized by David Hoegberg in conjunction with I300: South African Literature
      and Society

      Monday, March 6, 7:00-9:00 PM, Lilly Auditorium (UL 0130)
      Sarafina! (Darrell Roodt, 1992)
      A film based on Mbogeni Ngema’s stage play set during the Soweto uprisings of
      1976, combining music and dance with social responsibility and accurate history.

      Friday, March 24, 6:30-8:30 PM, Lilly Auditorium (UL 0130)
      Amandla! A Revolution in Four-Part Harmony (Lee Hirsch, 2002)
      This award-winning documentary tells the story of black South African freedom
      music and the central role it played in the struggle against apartheid. A good
      general introduction to South African apartheid and the anti-apartheid struggle.

      Thursday, April 6, 7:00-9:00 PM, Lilly Auditorium (UL 0130)
      Mapantsula (Oliver Schmitz, 1988)
      The first anti-apartheid feature film made by, for, and about black South
      Africans. Filmed in Soweto, it tells the story of Panic, a petty gangster who
      becomes caught up in the growing anti-apartheid struggle and has to choose
      between individual gain and a united stand against the system.

      Friday, April 21, 6:30-8:30 PM, Lilly Auditorium (UL 0130)
      Long Night’s Journey into Day: South Africa’s Search for Truth and
      Reconciliation (Deborah Hoffman, 2000)
      This winner of the 2000 Sundance award for Best Documentary details the
      controversies and heartaches surrounding the work of the Truth and
      Reconciliation Commission. It follows several TRC cases over a two-year period.
      The stories in the film underscore the universal themes of conflict,
      forgiveness, and renewal.
