Destroyed homes, threats at gunpoint, and high-court action. The award-winning documentary, Dear Mandela, follows three young people, living in Durban’s vast shanty-towns, fighting for their homes when the South African government plans to “eradicate the slums.” Devastating, inspiring, and funny, this film explores South Africa’s new generation’s fight for human dignity before private property.
Join us for this special screening of Dear Mandela with filmmakers, Dara Kell and Christopher Nizza. We are screening this film in light of recent oppression by the South African government of the Abahlali baseMjondolo, Shack Dwellers Movement, the largest organization of the poor in post-Apartheid South Africa.
