This documentary features Prof. Andrea Durbach, Deputy Sex Discrimination Commissioner.
A Common Purpose follows Andrea as she returns to South Africa to meet her clients from the landmark Upington 25 trial. In 1985, when apartheid was at its most violent, a black policeman was burnt to death and 25 people were convicted of his murder; 14 were sentenced to hang. A Common Purpose portrays the legal complexity of a notorious trial that marks South Africa’s transition from apartheid to democracy. The story – as told by Andrea, journalist John Carlin and the accused – reveals one of legal history’s biggest death penalty cases and a battle for justice in a country where injustice was entrenched in law.
A Common Purpose won the Audience Award for Best Documentary at the Sydney Film Festival.
The screening (77 mins) will be followed by a question and answer session with Prof. Durbach. And Director Mitzi Golberg
The screening will be a fundraising event for Gaza’s Ark.
