Director: Nicolas Champeaux, Gilles Porte. Country: France. Language: English and French with English subtitles. Two years after opening the UK Jewish Film Festival with the drama An Act of Defiance, we are proud to bring you this riveting documentary. Based on 256 hours of previously inaccessible audio recordings and featuring archival footage and animation, it recounts the 1963-1964 Rivonia Trial against Nelson Mandela and eight other defendants; a watershed moment in the long-standing fight against Apartheid. Interviews with key players - including defendant Denis Goldberg, the son of Jewish prosecutor attorney-general Percy Yutar, and Winnie Mandela – shed further light on South Africa's racial segregation and explore the very different sides on which the Jewish players found themselves: Goldberg in the dock, and Yutar arguing for the state. The 23rd UK Jewish Festival is proud to be presenting its first major tour of the country. A fantastic range of gems from the Jewish cultural world will be seen in 21 towns and cities in the UK. And the great news is that you don't have to be Jewish to come along! For more information about the tour, visit ukjewishfilm.org
