Accused no. 2: Walter Sisulu, directed by Nicolas Champeaux and Gilles Porte, produced by la Générale de Production

France | 2018 | 15 minutes
Language: English

The story of the struggle against Apartheid is symbolised by one man: Nelson Mandela. He came to public notice during the Rivonia trial, but he was not alone, nine co-accused were sentenced with him to hard labour for life. At the risk of their lives, they had chosen to turn their trial into a political indictment of the segregationist regime.
Today, with 256 hours of audio recordings of the hearings, we can relive the ANC’s fight against Apartheid and discover the accused number 2, Walter Sisulu, Secretary General of the ANC.

Presented at the IDFA DocLab

Traveling While Black, directed by Academy Award-winning director Roger Ross Williams and Ayesha Nadarajah in collaboration with Felix & Paul Studios, produced by Ayesha Nadarajah and Jihan Robinson

United States | 2018 |21 minutes
Language: English

Traveling While Black is a cinematic VR experience that immerses the viewer in the long history of restriction of movement for black Americans and the creation of safe spaces in our communities. Visit historic Ben's Chili Bowl and join patrons as they share and reflect on their experiences. Confronting the way we understand and talk about race in America, Traveling While Black highlights the urgent need to facilitate a dialogue about the challenges minority travelers still face today.

Presented at the New Frontier section of the Sundance Film Festival
