The story of the life of a remarkable man who helped to inspire and liberate a nation will be seen for the first time in Namibia. The film « Sobukwe – a Great Soul », directed by Mickey Madoda Dube, celebrates the life of Robert Mangaliso Sobukwe, restoring him to his rightful place as a leading figure in South African history.
« Sobukwe – A Great Soul », featuring Luthuli Dlamini (Scandal!, The Coconuts, Isidingo, Generations, Drum) in the title role, communicates many of the qualities that Sobukwe embodied, demonstrating the integrity, courage, honesty, humanity and true leadership for which he was known, and which continue to have resonance today.
The film is a feature length drama-documentary which charts the course of a leader who has been all but forgotten in the anals of history. The documentary, commissioned by SABC’s Kamscilla Naidoo as part of their Icons series on South African leaders, explores Sobukwe’s life and provides a platform for his voice to be heard decades after he made his mark, putting his name back on the world map of great liberators.
