Road To Ingwavuma is an exploration of South Africa's triumphs and struggles since the fall of apartheid through the eyes of a remarkable ANSA delegation of noted artists and their families including: Carlos Santana, Deborah Santana, Samuel L. Jackson, LaTanya Richadson Jackson, Alfre Woodard, CCH Pounder, and Jurnee Smollett.
The documentary chronicles their memorable 2006 trip through Cape Town, Johannesburg, and KwaZulu-Natal as well as their interactions with their heroes and friends: former President Nelson Mandela, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Ahmed Kathrada, Zackie Achmat, Mark Heywood, and other leaders in the fight against apartheid, HIV/AIDS, and poverty. It is a trek of stark contrasts: magnificent natural beauty, the ravages of HIV/AIDS, and the painful disparity between privilege and poverty.
Spearheaded by author and philanthropist Deborah Santana and ANSA's Executive Director Sharon Gelman, the inspiration for the trip was the desire for ANSA leaders to witness together how the programs and policies they champion are helping thousands of children and families impacted by the HIV/AIDS pandemic as well as to explore how they might continue to combat the devastation of HIV/AIDS pandemic and apartheid's legacies of poverty and deprivation.
The film is the latest documentary from Peabody and Emmy winning filmmaker Barbara Rick. All proceeds from the sale of the DVD support ANSA.
