In My Country in July

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment have announced the Region 1 DVD release of In My Country for 5th July 2005 priced at $24.96 SRP. In 1996, the South African government established the Truth and Reconciliation Commission to investigate abuses of human rights under apartheid. These hearings would serve as a forum for those accused of murder and torture to be confronted by their victims and, by admitting their guilt, be granted amnesty under Ubuntu, the native custom of forgiveness. Covering the sessions are Langston Whitfield (Samuel L. Jackson) and Anna Malan (Juliette Binoche), two journalists who, through their reporting, inspire both the world and themselves with these extraordinary stories about courage, compassion and the redeeming power of love. Directed by John Boorman the film is based on the book "Country of My Skull" by Antjie Krog.

Features include:

  • Anamorphic Widescreen
  • English DD5.0 Surround
  • French subtitles
  • Commentary by director John Boorman
