AN ACT OF DEFIANCE
Netherlands, 2017, 123 min., English/Afrikaans
In this riveting historical drama, Nelson Mandela and his inner circle of Black and Jewish supporters face a possible death sentence for conspiracy to commit sabotage after they are arrested by the apartheid South African government during a raid in the town of Rivonia during the summer of 1963. Bram Fischer, a sympathetic lawyer, risks his career and freedom to defend these men.
Presented by Mary and Barry Ganapol
