The Other Man
Director Nicolas Rossier explores the political accomplishments and challenges faced by Nobel Laureate and former South African President F.W. DeKlerk who was South Africa’s last white apartheid-era President. In less than four years he went from being Mandela’s jailor to his deputy president. Together Mandela and DeKlerk changed the face of South African history and warded off a potential civil war. Yet little is known about DeKlerk. Through his probing lens, the award winning director explores DeKlerk’s fascinating political journey and examines the legacy of this complicated figure.
