In 1995, South Africa's new, black-majority government set up the Truth and Reconciliation Commission to investigate the murders and torture that occurred under state-sanctioned apartheid. Headed by Archbishop Desmond Tutu, the commission heard testimony from the perpetrators of the crimes as well as its victims and sought a way to reach some sort of tenuous closure. Country of My Skull is a response to the commission's findings, but it is also a compelling meditation on violence and its aftermath.
