WHISPERING TRUTH TO POWER

By Shameela Seedat

This film charts the final year in office of South Africa's Public Protector, Thuli Madonsela, as she attempts to bring justice to ordinary people. After successfully challenging President Zuma for illegal use of state funds, she now has to face the biggest challenge of her career: investigating - in the face of protests, death threats and legal challenges - the alleged systematic takeover of government by a private family in cahoots with the President. The film documents the tense story of Madonsela's last year in public office while simultaneously crafting an absorbing tale of an outstanding lawyer, mother and woman, and also providing insight into several critical issues facing South Africa today, such as ongoing inequality, racial tensions, land redistribution, and corruption.
