CELTIC MEDIA FESTIVAL

QUIMPER 2020

Glasgow, Love and Apartheid

It's 100 years since Nelson Mandela was born and 70 years since the official introduction of the Apartheid laws in South Africa. Director Dhivya Kate Chetty tells her family's story, following her parents Radha and Maggie - a mixed, and once 'illegal' couple - on a trip from Glasgow back to South Africa. Stories of the past begin to unfold, with tales of resistance, protests, surveillance, an uncle in jail and a surprise connection with Mandela, in hiding.
