Hearts and Minds: The Burden of Truth
Produced by: Gemma Hooley
Larry Masset
The government of South Africa has decided that justice--in this case, prosecuting people for terrorism and other crimes during the apartheid era--is not as important as a full airing of the facts. Producer Gemma Hooley listens as the Truth and Reconciliation Commission hears testimony from both the victims of crimes and those who committed the crimes. The TRC is offering amnesty from prosecution to those who tell the truth. The aim is social healing; the question is, will it work?
