AN ACT OF DEFIANCE
Jean van de Velde | Drama | 123 min | Netherlands, South Africa | 2017 | English, Afrikaans

Based on the true story of the Rivonia Trial in apartheid South Africa, which led to the imprisonment of Nelson Mandela and nine of his black and Jewish compatriots, An Act of Defiance is the story of Bram Fischer, the lawyer who chose to put his life and freedom at risk to defend Mandela. Peter Paul Mullers performance as Fischer is exceptional, and captures his sympathetic and idealistic nature and his more conflicted, practical humanity, afraid that hell be implicated with the Rivonia Ten for his membership in the Communist Party. Jean van de Velde has crafted a film that is both a moving and powerful meditation on the sacrifices necessary to stand against injustice, and an exciting political thriller.
