The Other Man - F.W. de Klerk and the End of Apartheid

F.W. de Klerk was the last President of apartheid-era South Africa. In less than 4 years he went from being Mandela's jailor to his vice president. 

Together they changed history for the better and may have prevented a civil war, yet little is known about de Klerk. 

Through his probing lens, filmmaker Nicolas Rossier explores the fascinating political journey and legacy of this complicated figure.
