Film Screening of "In My Country"

Co-sponsored with UTPAC and Austin Public Libraries

Thu, April 1, 2010 | Carver Branch Library, 1161 Angelina

6:30 PM

Set during South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission, the film is adapted from Antjie Krog's Country of My Skull. Oscar-winner Juliette Binoche is Anna, an Africaans poet and broadcaster, and Samuel L. Jackson  is Langston, a Chicago reporter. The two meet during the hearings and take an instant dislike to each other. In due time, however, they come to an understanding and embark on a tentative affair, despite Anna's faith in the hearings and Langston's doubts.
