Beyond Forgiving est un film documentaire de 28 mn qui raconte l’histoire véridique de deux Sud-Africains ayant pour but de travailler à la réconciliation et à la guérison des blessures de leur pays après l’apartheid. Ginn Fourie et Lethlapa Mphalele constituent un duo improbable : une blanche chrétienne et un noir athée. L’une a souffert directement de l’action de l’autre, mais tous deux ont été des victimes – et ils ont su dépasser leur souffrance. Ce qui les unit c’est leur passé émouvant traversé de tragédie, de pardon et d’espoir.

Beyond Forgiving is a 28 minute 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.

Ray Purdy’s story is the story of an American who, as a young man in the early 1920’s, decided to devote his life to the concept, initiated by Dr Frank Buchman, that the only way to resolve conflict between races, classes and nations, and build a new society, is by changing the human nature of individuals, one by one, starting with yourself.  He found that this hate-disarming concept found response in people of all kinds in every country, and as the force of committed people grew, so did the global impact.

The story of Elsa Vogel, 88, born illegitimate in France, who survived being machine-gunned at 18 in Paris, and full of hate for the Germans. She met two young women and asked them: 'I have a faith, I go to church and I pray regularly. What is it that you have – and I don’t?'

It is written by Philip Boobbyer, a history lecturer at the University of Kent in the UK, who is known to many in Initiatives of Change.

"Більше, ніж прощення" - це 28-хвилинний документальний фільм про історію двох південноафриканців, які на основі власного досвіду почали процес примирення у постапартеїдному суспільстві. Джин Фурі та Летлапа Мпфалель - несподіване поєднання темношкірого атеїста та білої християнки.
