This VR film is an exceptional testimony about Walter Sisulu, a central figure in Nelson Mandela’s struggle against apartheid.
Leaders in the struggle for the rights of Africans in South Africa in the 1960s, when they risked the death penalty, the defendants turn their trial into a political forum. They want to take advantage of the presence of international journalists and diplomats to denounce the immorality of the segregationist regime.
Through a subjective experience immersed in the courtroom, this film restores the violence of the exchanges between Walter Sisulu and an aggressive, racist prosecutor who defends the established order.
