The documentary features the known story of Senator Robert Kennedy’s visit to South Africa during the worst years of Apartheid. He went to South Africa in 1966 to speak out against the oppression and discrimination. It was just two years before he was shot and killed in Los Angeles that Senator Robert Kennedy gave his “Ripple of Hope” speech at the University of Capetown. The film made by filmmakers Larry Shore and Tami Gold uses never before seen archival footage and interviews in South Africa and in the United States. The filmmakers explore the 5 day visit through the sights and sounds of present day South Africa.
