Directed by Lionel Rogosin

With Miriam Makeba,Vinah Makeba,Zachria Makeba,Molly Parkin

“The sound of the beating of the consciousness of a waking Africa.”
—The Village Voice

Rogosin made his best-known film, On the Bowery, to prepare for this chronicle of the lives of black South Africans in the thick of the harsh apartheid government in 1959. In documenting the former township of Sophiatown, he discovered the inimitable singer Miriam Makeba in this "heroic film… a film of terrible beauty, of the ongoing life it captured and of the spirit embodied by Rogosin and his fellow artists" (Martin Scorsese).
