Award winning film’s South African protagonists to visit the UK in May 2014
Ginn Fourie and Letlapa Mphalele, the protagonists of the award winning Beyond Forgiving documentary film, will visit the UK from 10 to 20 May 2014. They have been invited by IofC-UK and partners to speak at UK capital cities and to engage with audiences on how to ‘build bridges across the world’s divides’.
Interest in the documentary has been greatly heightened since the film received the Golden Award for Inspiration and the award for Best Director at the International Film Festival for Peace, Equality and Inspiration.
Beyond Forgiving, an Initiatives of Change production, tells the inspiring story of forgiveness and reconciliation between Ginn and Letlapa from South Africa and their journey to bring healing to their country. Public screenings and discussion evenings have taken place over the last two months in towns across the UK including, London, Liverpool, Newbury, Nottingham, Devizes, Alton, Abingdon, Oxford and Keswick.
We need help to fund the visit
There has been an expressed wish that this visit be a ‘people’s initiative’ and supported by the IofC network and partners.
The visit budget is estimated at £15,000 and we hope that £7,500 can be raised through donations to help cover travel, venue space, publicity material and accommodation. The ball has started to roll with contributions of over £700 from people who have seen the film at recent screenings around the country.
If you can support Ginn and Letlapa’s visit please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org,
