In this riveting historical drama, political activists (including Nelson Mandela and his inner circle of black and Jewish supporters) face a possible death sentence for conspiracy to commit sabotage following their arrest by the apartheid South African government during a raid in the town of Rivonia in the summer of 1963. Bram Fischer, 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 (123 minutes; subtitles).

Special guest Damon M. Seligson, Esq. (J.D., 1996), Partner, DiNicola, Seligson and Upton, LLP, will speak.
