The Robben Island Shakespeare by Matthew Hahn( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the Apartheid years in South Africa, a copy of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare was smuggled around the prison on Robben Island. The book's significance resides in the fact that the book's owner, Sonny Venkatratham, passed it to a number of his fellow political prisoners in the single cells, including Nelson Mandela, asking them to mark their favourite passages with a signature and date. Informally known as "the Robben Island Bible", numerous prisoners selected the speeches that meant the most to them and their experience as political prisoners. In 2008 and 2010, playwright and scholar Matthew Hahn conducted interviews with eight former political prisoners in South Africa. Offering a vivid and startling account of the experience of these political prisoners during Apartheid, this extraordinary verbatim play weaves Shakespeare's words together with first-hand accounts from these men. They offer their reflections on their time as Liberation activists and, twenty years later, on the costs, consequences and whether or not it was all worth it."--Provided by Google Books

In darkest Hollywood by Daniel Riesenfeld( Visual )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Almost from the beginning of cinema, filmmakers have looked at the continent of Africa with a mixture of fear and fascination, prejudice and contempt. South Africa, with its fabulous mineral wealth, exotic locations, and white settlers, attracted scores of movie makers. Now, when the era of white rule has ended, In darkest Hollywood asks: What was the role of cinema during the 45 year reign of apartheid? Through a mosaic of feature, documentary, and propaganda films, with commentary by writers, directors, and actors, some of whom supported apartheid, and others who fought to destroy it, In darkest Hollywood turns the lens towards the filmmakers and the society they so often misunderstood and misrepresented. This two-part series examines the role of cinema in both supporting and attacking apartheid. It questions Hollywood's commitment to racial stereo types and reluctance to depict black heroes. Among those appearing are: Lewis Nkosi, Zakes Mokae, Sir Richard Attenborough, Lonel Rogosin, Thomas Mogotlane, Andre Brink, Euzhan Palcy. First Prize, Big Muddy Film FestivalGold Plaque Award, Chicago International Film Festival; London Film Festival; Berlin Film Festival; Amsterdam Film Festival. Directed by: Peter Davis Daniel Riesenfeld
