6:00 PM -

(Includes Gala Event)

 

Krotoa, a feisty, bright 11-year-old girl, is removed from her close-knit Khoi tribe to serve Jan van Riebeeck, her uncle’s trading partner. She is brought into the first Fort established by the Dutch East India Company in 1652. There, she grows into a visionary young woman who assimilates into the Dutch language and culture so well that she rises to become an influential interpreter for van Riebeeck. While van Riebeek became the first Governor of the Cape Colony, Krotoa was both rejected by her own Khoi people and destroyed by the Dutch when she tried to find the middle road between the two cultures.

South Africa, 1987. When Leon, a white 19-year-old prison guard commits an inexplicable act of violence, killing seven black men in a hail of bullets, the outcome of the trial - and the court’s sentence - seems a foregone conclusion.

A passionate opponent of the death penalty, John discovers that young Leon worked on death row in the nation’s most notorious prison, under traumatic conditions: befriending the inmates over the years while having to assist their eventual execution. As the court hearings progress, the case offers John the opportunity to put the entire system of legally sanctioned murder on trial. How can one man take such a dual role of friend and executioner,becomingbothshepherdandbutcher?

Inspired by true events, this is the story that puts the death penalty on trial and changes history.
