The State Against Mandela and the Others

by Nicolas Champeaux & Gilles Porte

The State Against Nelson Mandela and OthersTo mark the 100th birthday of Nelson Mandela, Ciné-ONU presented this must-see documentary by Nicolas Champeaux and Gilles Porte, that traces, through forgotten sound recordings, the historical trial of the former president of South Africa, where eight others were sentenced to death. Subjected to ruthless cross-examination, for one man, they remained firm and confronted the apartheid regime in. This film brings us back into the heat of the moment.

The screening was followed by a discussion.



Presented in collaboration with the permanent missions of France and of South Africa to the UN Geneva, the Permanent Delegation of the European Union to the UN Geneva.
