Public Screening of a Movie about Desmond Tutu as Part of the Monte-Carlo Television Festival
There will be a public screening of the movie "Children of the Light" on 8 June 2014 at 5 p.m.
"Children of the Light" retraces the life of Desmond Tutu, who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984. It highlights the essential role he played in the emergence of the "South African miracle."
The movie goes back in time and retraces the steps of this South African archbishop, portraying dramatic images of his own life and the struggle against apartheid and suffering, which nevertheless inspired the process of truth and reconciliation in South Africa.
It then invites spectators to take a tour around the world to meet five young activists and directors living in Peru, Burma, East Timor, India and South Africa, who were inspired and influenced by Desmond Tutu's example and are agents of social change in their own communities.
