Still image from the film Dear Mandela

Dear Mandela follows the journeys of three friends from the rundown shacks of Durban’s slums to the highest court in South Africa. In response to the government’s campaign to “eradicate the slums” by evicting shack dwellers, these three friends refuse to be moved—even when facing eviction at gunpoint. Inspired by Nelson Mandela’s promise to provide housing for all in post-apartheid South Africa, they become leaders in a growing movement of the poor that challenges evictions on the streets and in the courts. In English and Zulu with English subtitles. (HDCam Presentation)
