A Word From Desmond Tutu for 'Children of the Light'
A personal taped greeting from the Archbishop as the BALINALE audience settled in to watch this truly inspiring film. 'Children of the Light' directed by Dawn Engle (USA) is the first film to tell the life story of Nobel Prize winner Desmond Tutu, one of the fathers of modern day South Africa. With extensive archival footage, family photos and never before seen interviews, the documentary is a personal look into the legacy of one of the greatest peacemakers of our time. The film’s Asian Premiere was held on 18 October as the festival’s Closing Night Feature.
