Winner of the Audience Award, Durban International Film Festival, 2014 As South Africa prepares to celebrate its 20th anniversary of the advent of democracy in 1994, it’s hard to believe the ‘Mandela miracle’ nearly didn’t happen. In an orgy of countrywide violence, some were intent on derailing the first free elections. Now, for the first time, those responsible for countless deaths and widespread mayhem explain how they nearly brought South Africa to its knees. 1994 The Bloody Miracle is a chilling look at what these hard men did to thwart democracy, but how they have now made an uneasy peace with the ’Rainbow Nation’ in their own different ways. I was very happy to be part of the team working on this documentary, taking over as editor for the final 5 weeks of post-production.
