Inspired by a true story, The Forgiven tells the story about crimes and their impact on humanity. The said film features Forest Whitaker who took the role of Archbishop Desmond Tutu whose morals and intellect were put to test by Eric Bana’s character named Piet Blomfield, a convicted murderer serving a life sentence in prison and looking for redemption for the sins he committed.

The story unfolds and we see Tutu who struggles to fight to hold together a country on the brink of breaking down, without losing himself in the process. The question that the movie seeks to address is do crimes against humanity deserve forgiveness?

Aside from Oscar winner Forest Whitaker who’s famous for his roles in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Black Panther, Lee Daniel’s The Butler, and Eric Bana (King Arthur: Legend of the Sword), Star Trek, Troy, and Hulk, among the bright minds of the film Forgiven, are Academy nominated Roland Joffee who wrote and directed the movie together with Michael Ashton, who wrote the original play The Archbishop and The Antichrist, which the movie took inspiration from.

Described as a story of redemption and forgiveness this film was shot completely in Cape Town, South Africa. Mostly filmed in and around the city, the film crew on many occasions had to endure long days and nights in one of the world’s most dangerous prison facilities, Pollsmoor Maximum Security Prison, where Nelson Mandela himself spent his years between 1982 and 1988.

“Archbishop Tutu’s story is poignant and timely” added producers Craig Baumgarten and Zaheer Goodman-Bhyat. “It reminds us of his gift of forgiveness and the healing it brings, and we are honored to tell this story.”

Showing dates for The Forgiven will start on March 27, 2019, in cinemas across different global locations.
