Chris Menges in A World Apart

A World Apart

1988 PG

This powerful examination of apartheid stars Barbara Hershey as South African journalist Diana Roth, a white woman jailed for her political activism. Diana's fierce commitment to the cause is unfathomable to her 13-year-old daughter (Jodhi May), who feels hurt by and resentful of her mother's intense focus on issues outside the family. Escalating events push mother and daughter into a climactic confrontation in this drama based on true events.
