Life is Wonderful: Mandela’s Unsung Heroes

November 29, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

“A film by Nick Stadlen.

The film lasts 88 minutes and will be  followed by a discussion led by the film-maker.

Former High Court Judge and Alistair Horne Visiting Fellow Sir Nick Stadlen tells the story of Nelson Mandela’s co-defendants at the Rivonia trial, the lawyers who saved them from the gallows and some of the other brave men and women who supported them in their fight for the freedom of South Africa. It is an inspiring story of immense courage and self sacrifice on the part  of a small group of black, white and Indian idealists who said: Not on my watch. Not in my name.In the words  of  Andrew Mlangeni, Accused Number 10, they were a multi racial band of comrades who fought for a non racial democracy.

The film won the award for Best International Film at the Encounters South African Documentary Film Festival in June.”
