Le Procès contre Mandela et les autres

  1. Overview

  3. Fact Sheet

The story of the struggle against apartheid singles out one man in particular: Nelson Mandela. In 2018, he would have celebrated his 100th birthday. He stood up for himself during a landmark trial in 1963 and 1964. In the dock eight of his comrades were also risking the death penalty. Confronting a diligent prosecutor, together they decide to transform their trial into a platform against apartheid. The recently exposed sound archives of these hearings enable us to closely relive this intense confrontation.
