PLOT FOR PEACE
Original title: PLOT FOR PEACE
A film by Carlos Agullo & Mandy Jacobson
This is the untold story behind History, a well-kept secret behind the world-wide icon: Nelson Mandela’s release was a Plot for Peace. For the first time, heads of state, generals, diplomats, master spies and anti-apartheid fighters reveal how Africa’s front line states helped end apartheid. Their improbable key to Mandela’s prison cell was a mysterious French businessman, dubbed «Monsieur Jacques» in classified correspondence. His trade secret was trust.
