Film screening: Winnie

Thursday 12th April 2018
19:15 - 21:15

To commemorate the extraordinary legacy of Winnie Mandela we are holding a screening of the brilliant documentary 'Winnie'. This film looks at her life and contribution to the struggle to bring down apartheid from the inside, with intimate insight from Winnie herself. Synopsis: Winnie Pascale Lamche | South Africa 2017 | 1h38m | 15 Supremely controversial, Winnie Mandela has been labeled a woman condemned for her radical role in the liberation of her South African people under apartheid. While her husband, Nelson Mandela, remained securely jailed for 27 years, Winnie brushed the patriarchy aside to fight on the front line and take uncompromising steps to inspire an uprising. While Nelson was remembered as a hero, Winnie was demonised in the global media. Filmmaker Pascale Lamche paints a complex portrait of Winnie Mandela: the woman, the paradox, both exalted and villainized in the eyes of history. Using rich, unseen archival footage and interviews with intimate comrades, Lamche unravels the tale of cause and effect by which Winnie was taken down.
