AFRICAN PREMIERE
Adapted from South African writer André Brink’s novel, A Dry White Season focused on the politics of South African apartheid and was such a compelling project that it attracted actor Marlon Brando to come out of a self-imposed retirement to fulfill the project’s vision. Teacher Ben du Toit (Donald Sutherland) mostly ignores the problems of apartheid in South Africa until he discovers that the son of a gardener (Winston Ntshona) at his school has been killed by corrupt policeman Stolz (Jürgen Prochnow). Du Toit persuades human rights attorney Ian McKenzie (Marlon Brando) to try the long-shot case against Stolz. During the trial, Du Toit's transformation into an advocate for justice is so absolute that it distances him from his family.
