César for Best Documentary Feature in 2019, this film lifts the veil on the historic Rivonia trial in 1963 and 1964. It transports us back into the thick of the courtroom battles when Nelson Mandela seized centre stage, among eight others who, like him, faced the death sentence. Together, they stood firm and turned the tables on South Africa’s apartheid regime.
