Oliver Tambo: Have You Heard from Johannesburg
Channel: BET (DStv 129)
Time: Sunday 17 December, 21:30
In a powerful broadcast event, AfriDocs on BET is proud to present the world premiere of a new biopic about ANC anti-apartheid icon Oliver Tambo.
Airing in the year of the 100th anniversary of his birth, Have You Heard from Johannesburg gives viewers rare insight into the life, ethos and politics of the leader of the ANC who was instrumental in bringing an end to apartheid.
Albie Sachs, the executive producer of the film, says: “This is a spirited, lively and eminently watchable film that brings Tambo to life on screen, with moving and poignant interviews with Chris Hani, Kenneth Kaunda and members of the Tambo family. The film shows not just the politics of the man, but also shines a light on a life lived on principles of ethics, compassion, inclusion, social justice and equality.”
The film will be available to stream for free via #AfriDocsAnytime on afridocs.net from 18 to 28 December.
