Synopsis

During the last 30 years, what has happened in South Africa? The termination of the apartheid regime in South Africa? The release of the indisputable world hero Nelson MANDELA? What we know is the tip of an iceberg. The film shows the underbody. At the center of the story of Plot for Peace stands Jean-Yves OLLIVIER. The film focuses on this French man, how he got involved and how he used his genius diplomatic skills. Plot for Peace is neither a historical nor political film of South Africa. It rather focuses on one particular person. The structure is almost like an adventure film or a political thriller. We come to recognize unknown facts, as if Alice from Alice in Wonderland arrived in Wonderland and faced a whole new kind of issues. Jean-Yves OLLIVIER arrived in a completely different society and met people who did not trust each other, hated each other and refused to even sit on the same table. He wanted to reconcile the problem. In conclusion, he succeeded. He influenced Nelson MANDELA’s release from prison and helped to broker peace between South Africa and its neighboring states. ‘Trust’ was the key he had. In one interview, OLLIVIER plays a card game and states that card games are done by the players not the cards. We have a card called trust and a card called peace. Who and how plays them is the crucial matter. This documentary looks into the human stories behind the headlines, the diplomacy and the politics. It allows us to communicate with individuals from untold history and a faraway nation. (LEE Seung-min)
