Plot For Peace

Documentary thriller Plot For Peace continues its series of Q&A screenings this week with 5 more dates.

Plot For Peace tells the untold story behind the scret evets leading up to the end of apartheid and the release of Nelson Mandela.

The synopsis is:

To some, such as South Africa’s former President Thabo Mbeki, Jean-Yves Ollivier (alias “Monsieur Jacques”) was a mysterious businessman and sanctions buster or a French spy. For others, such as Winnie Mandela and Mozambique’s former President Joaquim Chissano, he was a trusted friend and a man of bold vision.

For the first time, heads of state, generals, diplomats, master spiesand anti-apartheid fighters reveal how “Monsieur Jacques” positioned himself to be the improbable key to Mandela’s prison cell. Stepping out of the shadows, “Monsieur Jacques” navigates the behind-the-scenes bargaining and intrigue that he engineered to bring about regional peace and the end of racial discrimination in South Africa.

“I shake the hand I cannot sever”, says Jean-Yves Ollivier. He was the first man in history to be given South Africa’s highest honour “Grand Officer In The Cape Of Good Hope” by both the leader of the apartheid regime President P.W. Botha, as well as Nelson Mandela, the first democratically elected President of the new South Africa.
