Sobukwe A Great Soul
Awards: DIFF Amnesty International Award, SAFTAS 5 awards including Best Feature Documentary, ZIFF Best Documentary.
The essence of the great soul that is Sobukwe lay in his deep sense of humanity, integrity and courage. This film is about Sobukwe the man; the freedom fighter, the lay-preacher and the global visionary. It is about South Africa’s history, from a perspective not yet told. This film takes us through his life journey from childhood, to being prisoner number ONE on Robben Island to his death and is his incredible human spirit – how he defined an era, refined an ethos – Pan-Africanism, gave rise to Black Consciousness and returned dignity to black people.
