Coming Of Age: The ANC's Hundred Year Of Struggle
1 x 60'
The African National Congress sis the grand old man of liberation politics on the African Continent. As it marks its centenary, the party of Nelson Mandela stops to consider its epic past, which directed South Africa's political evolution over the last centurey. From its founding in 1912 by African intellectuals, through the dark days of apartheid to the almost miraculous transition to democracy in the early 1990s, the ANC had been a centre stage in the fight for human rights in South Africa. By talking to liberation leaders who lived through the dramatic episodes of the political party's development, this film gauges the party's values, ideals and aspirations as it moved painfully towards negotiation and ultimately, liberation.
