ATO Presents Amandla! A Revolution in Four-Part Harmony now on DVD.
Directed by Lee Hirsch over a ten year period, Amandla! reveals the critical role music played in the South African struggle against apartheid from 1948 to the 1994 election of Nelson Mandela. Amandla! shows how music was not only a unifying force through the struggle, but also a means to inspire continued resistance.
“This documentary is a marvel, an extraordinary achievement. While it is the story of South Africa, the message is universal. Not one person should miss this film. Not one.” - Dave Matthews
Amandla! won both the Documentary Audience Award and the Freedom of Expression Award at the 2002 Sundance Film Festival.
