Connie Field is the director of some of the most exciting, politically potent documentaries of
our time: The Life and Times of Rosie the Riveter and Freedom On My Mind. Her new film is
nothing less than the definitive cinematic history of the worldwide effort to destroy South African
apartheid. Working over 10 years, filming throughout the world, interviewing dozens of the major
players  Field constructs a brilliant, epic 7-part history that will stand as the final word on how a
violent, racist, intractable government was destroyed by the concerted efforts of men and women
working on multiple fronts inside and outside South Africa for more than three decades. This
formidable accomplishment is anything but dry and academic: It's a lively, tension-filled, heartrending
and ultimately thrilling journey. - Film Forum (USA  2010  total running time: 8 Hours

1  THE ROAD TO RESISTANCE (58 mins.)
In 1948, South Africa institutes apartheid, a system of segregation
that infiltrates every aspect of life. The Sharpeville Massacre
shocks the world, and Nelson Mandela and other leaders of the
African National Congress (ANC) are jailed. Hundreds escape
into exile.

2  HELL OF A JOB (58 mins.)
Oliver Tambo heads the resistance from exile (opposition within
South Africa has been effectively crushed). A worldwide
movement begins with support from the Soviet Union and Sweden.

3  THE NEW GENERATION (58 mins.)
The Soweto Uprising, led by a younger generation, inspires an
international response; apartheid opponent Steve Biko is
murdered; the United Nations issues a mandatory arms embargo
against South Africa.

4  FAIR PLAY (95 mins.)
An international sports boycott takes shape when African teams refuse
to compete in the Olympics with South Africa's all-white teams. Only
SA's world champion Springboks rugby team remains on the field

5  FROM SELMA TO SOWETO (90 mins.)
With the success of the U.S. Civil Rights Movement,
African-Americans push for economic sanctions against
South Africa. Despite President Reagan's opposition,
Congress finally imposes sanctions.

6  THE BOTTOM LINE (83 mins.)
Employees and consumers worldwide pressure Polaroid,
General Motors, Barclay's Bank and other corporate giants to
divest from South Africa. A financial crisis ensues when a
mass exodus of corporations isolates the white regime.

7  FREE AT LAST (75 mins.)
The campaign to free
Nelson Mandela (imprisoned
27 years) gains
momentum. His release,
coupled with ongoing
international pressure
and an unstoppable internal
mass movement, lead to
the toppling of apartheid
and the holding of
democratic elections.
