Amandla! A Revolution in Four-Part Harmony

Directed by Lee Hirsch

This jubilant documentary celebrates the South African music and musicians that fuelled the struggle against Apartheid. The archival footage is a mix of key events and songs, alongside contemporary performances and interviews, including Hugh Masekela, Miriam Makeba, and Abdullah Ibrahim. The film is packed with music and ‘it’s the director’s choice to make song itself the most important presence in a story packed with memorable people and heart-wrenching events that lends AMANDLA! the exhortatory power of music itself.’ Village Voice, N.Y.
