Amandla! A Revolution In Four Part Harmony

(artisan) Release Date: February 14, 2003 Director: Lee Hirsch Cast: Abdullah Ibrahim, Sibongile Khumalo, Vusi Mahlasela, Miriam Makeba, Nelson Mandela Plot: Nine years in the making, this documentary showcases the songs that South African protesters chanted during the decades-long anti-Apartheid movement, creating a new musical art form that few people thought to document at the time. The songs were an important tool for activists who needed to spread calls to arms to people who were sometimes not necessarily able to understand the political finesses of a particular speech or event, but the emotion and storytelling abilities of the song were able to achieve that.
