DVD Final Solution (Special Edition)
The indoctrination of Gerrit Woldfaardt [Jan Ellis] is complete: his family traditions, history, culture – even his church – have taught him that black South Africans are a cancer. Under the eye of prominent members of the government and military, Gerrit develops a diabolical plan to rid South Africa of its “black danger”. Before his plans can be carried out, he meets two people who put him on a collision course with his future: Celeste (Liezel van der Merwe), an open-minded university student, and Peter Lekota (John Kani), a pastor who challenges Gerrit’s prejudice.
His “final solution” meets its greatest obstacle when Gerrit himself realized he was wrong. The Persecutor became the Peacemaker and began to seek reconciliation between whites and blacks. However, in the turbulent last days of apartheid, there were those who doubt his transformation. One such person was Moses Moremi (Mpho Lovinga), whom Gerrit had once violently attacked. In the film’s dramatic conclusion, it is Moses who must choose between peace and bloodshed.
Based on a true story, this remarkable film features an exceptional international cast, including Tony Award¨ winner John Kani.
