Dir Dali Tambo

2019 | South Africa | 78min

This wide-ranging documentary about the life of revered ANC leader Oliver Tambo blends a wealth of archival footage with contemporary interviews with key political figures. The film follows Tambo from his early experiences at Fort Hare University – from which he was expelled for refusing to apologise about a racial incident – to his role as President of the ANC in exile, eventually setting up the negotiations in Lusaka for a free South Africa. The film depicts Tambo as a master diplomat, whose vision and foresight created the network of global alliances that constituted the anti-apartheid movement – the largest solidarity movement in history. While some attention is paid to his personal life, particularly his enduring relationship with his wife Adelaide, the film’s key focus is on Tambo’s role as the “architect of our freedom”.

Dir. Okhule Dyosopu

This short documentary is imparted with compassion and focuses on the personal story of Thandokazi. Through an honest dialogue, Thandokazi gives the viewer insight on how it truly feels to leave your home, and your high repute amongst your family and community, to play the role of a “well behaved”, submissive domestic worker named Patricia.
