Soft Vengeance is a film about Albie Sachs, a lawyer, writer, art lover and freedom fighter, set against the dramatic events leading to the overthrow of the apartheid regime in South Africa. As a young man, Albie defended those committed to ending apartheid. For his actions as a lawyer, he was imprisoned in solitary confinement, tortured and forced into exile. In 1988, a car bomb cost him his right arm and the sight of one eye, but he survived. Returning to South Africa following the release of Nelson Mandela, Albie helped write the new constitution and was appointed to the new Constitutional Court. / FOLLOWED BY OUR GALA PARTY AT FLUEVOG SHOES IN GASTOWN!
