Synopsis


Base of this work are recently restored sound archives of the Rivonia trial in 1963 and 1964, when Nelson Mandela, accused number one, read a speech justifying why the ANC had resorted to violence. Sisulu, accused number two, was the first of the group to be cross-examined. Sisulu was the one who found Mandela. It was Sisulu who persuaded Mandela to join the ANC. Sisulu was his guide. Sisulu was his mentor. This VR experience allows us to relive the five days of his gripping confrontation with an overtly racist prosecutor. Sisulu, who faced the death penalty, stood up to the unrelenting aggression and gave as good as he got. Transported back into a world of secret court sessions during the apartheid nightmare, the viewer will discover the testimony of an exceptional man who instigated one of the turning points of 20th century history.
