Multifaith Film Fest – An Act of Defiance

March 9, 1:30 pm at Bender JCC of Greater Washington.

Director/Writer: Jean van de Velde

Netherlands / 2018 / English / Afrikaans / 123 MIN
Synopsis: In this riveting historical drama, 10 political activists (including Nelson Mandela and his inner circle of Black and Jewish supporters) face a possible death sentence for conspiracy to commit sabotage after they are arrested by the apartheid South African government during a raid in the town of Rivonia during the summer of 1963. Bram Fischer (exceptionally played by Peter Paul Muller), a sympathetic lawyer, risks his career and freedom to defend these men, attempting to hide the fact that he, too, frequently convened on the farm where they were arrested.
