Featuring: Justice Albi Sachs


Third Party Event: Have you heard from Johannesburg

Description: High Commissioner Tambo will be hosting Justice Albi Sachs for the screening of the documentary film series, Have You Heard From Johannesburg.  The screening of two parts of the series  will be followed by a question and answer session where Justice Sachs will be responding to questions and providing insight to the documentary.

Have You Heard From Johannesburg is seven documentary stories, produced and directed by Connie Field, chronicling the history of the global anti-apartheid movement that took on South Africa's entrenched apartheid regime.

Justice Albie Sachs was one of the first Justices appointed by Nelson Mandela to the South African Constitutional Court on which he served from 1994 to 2009. As an advocate who was active in the anti-apartheid movement, he was detained without trial in solitary confinement for five months. He later lost an arm and the sight in one eye following a car bomb in Mozambique, which had been planted by the Security Police of the apartheid era.

The South African High Commission looks forward to hosting you.
