A Conversation about South Africa to follow WINNIE screening Saturdat, Dec. 9 at 8:30PM. African Diaspora International Film Festival.

Supremely controversial, Winnie Mandela has been labeled a woman condemned for her radical role in the liberation of her South African people under apartheid.

While her husband, Nelson Mandela, remained jailed for 27 years, Winnie brushed the patriarchy aside to fight on the front line and take uncompromising steps to inspire an uprising. While Nelson was remembered as a hero, Winnie was demonized in the global media. Filmmaker Pascale Lamche paints a complex portrait of Winnie Mandela: the woman, the paradox, both exalted and villainized in the eyes of history. Using rich, unseen archival footage and interviews with intimate comrades, Lamche unravels the tale of cause and effect by which Winnie was taken down.

Directed by Pascale Lamche, France/Netherlands/South Africa, Documentary, 98 min, English.

After screening --conversation with Pascale Lamche, WINNIE Director and Lerato Bokako, Production Manager at Francois Odendaal Productions, South Africa. Conversation will be followed by a cocktail reception.

Where: Teachers College, Columbia University, 525 W 120th St
Milbank, Chapel, New York, NY 10027.
