Un film de Lauren Groenewald


This story transports you from Verwoerdian South Africa and Sophiatown in the 50s, to Harlem in the 60s, under the growing influence of Malcolm X, and the seventh floor of a building in New York from which Nat Nakasa, one of South Africa’s most visionary journalists, plunged to his tragic death, only a year after leaving South Africa on an exit permit. The film is made up of searching and personal interviews and archival material and includes music drawn from the period.
