An Act of Defiance
Ten political activists (Nelson Mandela and his inner circle of Black and Jewish supporters) face a death sentence for conspiracy to commit sabotage after they are arrested by the apartheid South African government. Bram Fischer (Peter Paul Muller), a sympathetic lawyer, risks his career and freedom to defend the men, attempting to hide the fact that he, too, frequently convened on the farm where they were arrested.
Directed by Jean van de Velde.
