Details

Followed by a Q&A with director Dhivya Kate Chetty and crew members. This will be BSL interpreted.

In the year of Nelson Mandela’s centenary, Glasgow, Love and Apartheid is the story of one family’s fight against apartheid from Scotland and South Africa. Director, Dhivya Kate Chetty, follows her parents – a mixed, and once ‘illegal’, couple – on a trip back to South Africa where the family stories begin to unfold – protests, an uncle in jail, an ANC arms cache, a doctor on the run and a surprise connection with Mandela in hiding. Illustrated with vivid super 8 shot by both grandfather and father, this intimate documentary is a tale of migration, resistance and reconciliation from South Africa to Scotland with love. This world premiere marks the 25th anniversary of Mandela’s historic visit to Glasgow.

Screening as part of Black History Month.
