ABOUT THE FILM:
Plot for Peace tells the strange and mysterious story of a lone French business men, who behind closed doors, was instrumental in releasing Mandela from prison. Utilizing interviews with figures directly involved with the historical events (including Winnie Mandela), Plot for Peace sheds light on a part of history that for so long lay hidden. As exciting as any political thriller, directors Carlos Agullo and Many Jacobson shows the complexities of international real politik and a rare look at the combination of social and economic forces that finally brought Apartheid to its knees. Filled with tense moments that would rival those of Argo, Plot for Peace is an inspiring film that shows us the power of a single individual to influence the course of history.
Directed by Carlos Agulló and Mandy Jacobson
