Beyond Forgiving is a documentary film, which depicts the journey of two South Africans to bring healing and reconciliation to their country post-Apartheid. Ginn Fourie and Letlapa Mphalele form an unlikely pair: a black atheist man and a white Christian woman. One has suffered directly from actions of the other, but both have been victims - and risen beyond their pain. What brings them together is a profound story of tragedy, forgiveness and hope.

the showing of the film will be followed by a discussion with Marina Cantacuzino (Founder of the Forgiviness Project) in the chair, and a panel consisting of the Imad Karam, film’s director and Howard Grace, executive producer and also Sue Hanisch who, in 1991, was caught up in an IRA bombing at Victoria Station, in which she lost her right leg and was severely injured.
