A stirring portrait of Albie Sachs, a monumental figure in South Africa’s human rights and anti-apartheid movements. As an indefatigable advocate against apartheid for over 60 years, Sachs was subjected to imprisonment, torture and exile. Eventually returning to his homeland, he became a chief architect of the post-apartheid constitution, a stunning victory after a lifetime of leading the fight. An essential film charting the courage and remarkable achievements of Sachs, and framed by a pivotal era of his country’s history.
