About Us

The director of the documentary Winnie, a film about late struggle stalwart Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, feels her film has “unsettled the waters” and caused people to talk about the way the anti-apartheid activist was treated during apartheid and by the country’s first democratic government.

Pascale Lamche, who was named best director for the documentary at the Sundance Film Festival in 2017, attended a press conference by the former safety and security minister Sydney Mufamadi on Monday morning, where he sought to distance himself from what was viewed as a plot to discredit the late struggle icon, as depicted in Lamche’s film.
