African Movie Fest: Uprize!

Sat, May 5 / 2 pm
Directed by Sifiso Khanyile
2017, South Africa, 57 min

The African Movie Festival in Manitoba (AM-FM) is a non-profit organization devoted to African themes and issues, especially as they relate to Manitoba, Canada and the world. The Festival will showcase African talents and will generate social, political and economic issues for discourse, and of course, provide entertainment value. Full details available at www.am-fm.ca.

On the morning of June 16, 1976, a group of school children in Soweto gathered peacefully to protest the mandatory inclusion of Afrikaans as a medium of instruction. By nightfall over 200 of them lay dead, mowed down by Apartheid armed forces. Forty years later, this film looks at the world that made these kids, and how in the absence of political leadership, they stood up to the might of an oppressive State. Especially relevant forty years later as university students once again take to the streets to fight the post-apartheid government on the issue of free quality education.
