1963, South Africa. Ten men – some black, some Jewish - are arrested for conspiring to commit sabotage against the Apartheid state and its government. Led by fellow defendant Nelson Mandela and represented by courageous Jewish lawyer Bram Fischer, the group members plead not guilty, shifting attention instead to the corrupted and grossly unjust political system. This captivating drama captures a seminal moment in the fight against racism and explores the role of South African Jews in consigning Apartheid to history. In English and Afrikaans with English subtitles. Post-screening Reception in the Cineworld bar.
