The Bonavero Institute of Human Rights is delighted to screen the film ‘Life is Wonderful: Mandela’s Unsung Heroes’ in association with Oxford Junior Lawyers Against Poverty. The film is written and directed by UK-based retired High Court judge Sir Nick Stadlen. The film will be followed by a panel discussion including Sir Nick Stadlen, historian Professor Colin Bundy, doctoral student Nomfundo Ramalekana, and chaired by Professor Kate O'Regan, Director of the Bonavero Institute and former justice of the Constitutional Court of South Africa.
The film is about the 1963/4 Rivonia Trial, at which Nelson Mandela was sentenced to life imprisonment for resisting white domination in apartheid-South Africa. It raises important questions about the principle of non-racialism and the ability of ordinary people to change the world as well as the role of law and trials in South African history.
