Translating South Africa’s reconciliation story

Posted in jetevarl on December 18th, 2019

first_img4 July 2014The world premiere of A Snake Gives Birth to a Snake, the much-anticipated documentary debut of celebrated television/film/theatre director Michael Lessac, is set to be one of the highlights of this year’s Durban International Film Festival.Some of the country’s foremost peace mediators will join the director, special guests, and members of the cast and crew for the world premiere screening, followed by a Q&A session, at Durban’s Suncoast Cinema on 20 July.A Snake Gives Birth to a Snake follows a group of South African actors as they tour war-torn regions of the world to share their country’s experience of reconciliation. As they ignite 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.‘Can we forgive the past to survive the future?’In 2001, Lessac returned to the Colonnades Theatre Laboratory, which he had founded 25 years before in New York City, to find a way of telling the story of South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC).“Can we forgive the past to survive the future?” This profound question, posed by Nelson Mandela, become a mandate by which other nations could live. Lessac wanted to bring the story of the TRC to a wider audience while exploring its potential as a concept that could be exported to other post-conflict zones.Seeking to better understand the subtleties of the TRC process, he found himself looking beyond the presentations of victims and perpetrators and focusing instead on the the role of the interpreters who translated the commission’s proceedings into South Africa’s 11 official languages.Lessac was intrigued by the fact that the interpreters, simultaneously translating in the first person, could never turn away from atrocity. Fascinated with what the TRC must have looked like through the eyes of people who, for two-and-a-half-years, verbalised every moment of the hearings, he met with a number of TRC interpreters as they relived their stories and memories for the first time.Truth in TranslationIn 2003, after interviewing over 350 actors in South Africa, Lessac held a three-week workshop with a core of chosen actors who developed script material out of their own life-experiences intertwined with the lives of the interpreters.The theatrical vehicle for these conversations was a production entitled Truth in Translation, a hard-edged, multi-award winning theatrical production, with accompanying workshops, that was created between 2003 and 2006. It opened in Rwanda before going on to tour to three continents, 11 countries and 26 cities. It has played to more than 55 000 people and facilitated conflict transformation workshops for more than 10 000 participants.A Snake Gives Birth to a Snake gives its audience a glimpse into the lives and minds of a group of South African performers who shared and listened, facilitated and responded to the heartbreaking real-life personal stories of the human casualties of global conflict.As South Africans representing various facets of South African society, they were forced to look at whether they themselves had successfully “reconciled” their own individual pasts, and came to realise how complex and challenging it is to engage with the multifaceted concept of forgiveness.‘Warriors of the most special kind’“For me, this film pays homage to a very special group of South African actors and interpreters who were warriors of the most special kind,” says Lessac. “They allowed themselves to travel through worlds that were often more painful than their own worst nightmares.”The documentary’s title refers to the answer given by perpetrators in conflict situations when asked why they kill babies. Their response, irrespective of their cultural background, is always, one way or another: “A snake gives birth to a snake.”“The film was originally titled Truth in Translation, just like the play,” says Lessac. “We changed it to A Snake Gives Birth to a Snake because, no matter how true that might be, when revenge is celebrated as heroism it is a poor excuse for killing.”The film was edited by Joel Plotch (In the Company of Men, Nurse Betty, Gone), produced by Jacqueline Bertrand Lessac and Emma Tammi, and executive produced by Jonathan Gray and Robert Lear. It features never-before-heard original music by jazz legend Hugh Masekela, with lyrics taken from personal testimonies before the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.The Durban International Film Festival takes place at venues in and around Durban from 17 to 27 July.Source: National Film and Video Foundationlast_img read more

Fans ignore India-WI Test series; after Kotla, stands at Eden go empty

Posted in puxsprkw on November 28th, 2019

first_imgTeam India has been on the verge of sealing a 2-0 Test series victory at the Eden Gardens, but unfortunately the poor turnout of fans to watch the action has certainly robbed the contest of its sheen and vigour.With just a little over 25,000 fans turning up at the stadium on the first three days, the appalling turnout at the Mecca of Indian cricket has shocked the cricket community. Is it merely a case of cricket overkill or are fans staying away for their increasing lack of interest in Test cricket?The empty stands at the Eden Gardens in the ongoing Kolkata Test is a worrying sign, especially since the fans had thronged the venue during the last two Tests held here against South Africa and Pakistan.After his superb century at the Eden Gardens, V.V.S. Laxman said on Tuesday: “It is a great ground with a lot of history and probably the spectators, even though there were not many in the two days in this Test match.”Laxman spelt out his biggest fear at his favourite ground. The sight of empty stands in the ongoing Test has truly shocked the cricket world.Despite the batsmen striking it big and three centuries from Indian stars, the turnout at the Eden Gardens has been appalling. The prince of Kolkata — Sourav Ganguly — was also dismayed at the city of joy’s poor response to the ongoing Test.One, Anand Agarwal blamed it on high ticket prices for the poor turnout.advertisement”Actually the price of ticket is very high and lots of cricket is going on so the crowd got exhausted. One more reason for less crowd is weekdays, as most of them are in office,” Agarwal reasoned.With no day of play falling on the weekend in the Kolkata Test, the CAB blamed the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for its timing of the contest.Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) secretary Biswaroop Dey said, “Everyday is a weekday… as people go to office. As the Test starts from Monday and ends on Friday so this is one of the reasons and another reason could be lots of cricket going on like Sri Lanka and Pakistan, South Africa and Australia.”While the overkill of cricket could be an added factor, the onus is indeed on the BCCI to safeguard the future of Test cricket.After the poor turnouts in Delhi and Kolkata, the lack of interest in Tests can be ascertained by the response Mumbai receives for the upcoming series finale.However, the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) has been going all out to ensure the crowds flock to the ground despite the venue hosting its first Test in six years and the impending hundredth ton from Sachin Tendulkar.last_img read more

The global reach is in many aspects, culturally, religiously, economically, even in sheer numbers.”Panlilio could only hope for the best as the Philippines-Japan-Indonesia contingent prepares for its final presentation on December 9 in Geneva, Switzerland before the Fiba Central Board as it hopes to edge the joint candidacy of Argentina and Uruguay in winning the bid.“I guess at the end of the day, we want to make sure that we do win.
