Twelve Disciples of Nelson Mandela

The Twelve Disciples of Nelson Mandela, film based on the story of the first wave of South African exiles who left Bloemfontein in 1960 to keep the anti-apartheid movement alive from East Africa, Europe, America and Cuba. In their heroic journey, this group of twelve — and the thousands of young South African freedom fighters that would follow them – helped to create a global seismic shift that ultimately toppled the apartheid system in South Africa. One of the Disciples, Pule Benjamin Leinaeng, was the filmmaker’s late father.
