Winnie (France). From the SIFF website: “The absorbing life story of Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, who fought on the front lines for South African human rights during her husband’s 27-year imprisonment, comes into focus through abundant archival footage and interviews with both her closest friends and those who hoped to silence her.”
