The time is 1963. The place is South Africa. Gus and Diana Roth, middle-class whites, are involved in the struggle against apartheid. The story, however, is seen through the eyes of their 13-year-old daughter, Molly, who feels neglected and ignored by her mother, shut out by Diana's preoccupation with her political activities. How both Diana and Molly cope with the pressures brought to bear on them and come to reconcile their commitment and responsibility not only to each other, but to the society in which they live, is the core of this film
A World apart : global inequality and its consequences by Chris Menges( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A growing number of environmentalists, ethicists, and economists believe that the needs of the "have-nots" will one day become too powerful to ignore. This program highlights that viewpoint, illustrating vast disparities between the living standards of developed and underdeveloped nations and questioning the wisdom of looking the other way. Deconstructing conventional economic notions of production and consumption, the film examines the role of Western corporations in environmental problems-such as deforestation, destructive mining, and land mine infestation in Africa, Asia, and South America. These problems are linked to global economic issues, such as lack of access to capital markets and dependence on foreign aid. (53 minutes)
