Episode Summary

Henry Rollins Uncut: South Africa
With an insightful and poetic narration from Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Henry travels through South Africa to explore this beautiful country and the recently acquired freedom for its people. The end of apartheid signified new beginnings for the citizens of South Africa, but Henry discovers an under-developed, under-employed, malnourished population that faces the pandemic threat of AIDS as an everyday reality. To get a better understanding of local culture and its history, Henry explores relevant locations including a desperate shantytown and the Robben Island prison where he finds himself standing within the very cell that imprisoned Nelson Mandela for nearly two decades. At the University of Cape Town, Henry performs an illuminating stage show, where he shares personal stories and discusses the gravity of South Africa's racist history and the current hardships of its people.moreless
