The State against Mandela and the Others

The State against Mandela and the Others

A Feature film by Nicolas Champeaux, Gilles Porte

Produced by UFO Production, Rouge International

Release in France : 17/10/2018


    2018 marks the centenary of the birth of Nelson Mandela.
    He seized centre stage during a historic trial in 1963 and 1964.
    But there were eight others who, like him, faced the death sentence. They too were subjected to pitiless cross-examinations. To a man they stood  rm and turned the tables on the state : South Africa’s Apartheid regime was in the dock.
    Recently recovered sound archives of those hearings transport us back into the thick of the courtroom battles.
