Facing the Truth with Bill Moyers, produced by Gail Pellett and Public Affairs Television, is an extraordinary documentary about the efforts of South Africans to deal with their past—specifically the years of apartheid. The film focuses on the stories of some of the individuals who testified before the nation’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC), established in 1995 to investigate gross violations of human rights in South Africa and beyond its borders between 1960 and 1994. Because of its powerful content, the film is most appropriate for high school and/or college students. Facing History and Ourselves has developed a study guide to accompany this documentary.
