Can we forgive the past to survive the future? A Snake Gives Birth to a Snake follows a diverse group of South African actors as they tour global war-torn regions to share their country's experience with reconciliation. As they ignite a dialogue among people with raw memories of atrocity, the actors find they must confront once again their homeland's complicated and violent past and question their own capacity for healing and forgiveness.


A debate will follow the screening with:
  • Mr. Michael Lessac, Director
  • Ms. Jackie Bertrand Lessac, Producer of the film
