A feature documentary about Oscar Pistorius, the Paralympic and Olympic athlete who shot and killed his girlfriend in the early hours of Valentine’s Day in 2013, and whose culpable homicide sentence was later overturned and replaced with a murder conviction by the South African Court of Appeal in December 2015.
The film explores the tragedy of Reeva Steenkamp’s death; alongside a look at South Africa’s turbulent society. Over twenty years after Nelson’s Mandela’s seeming triumph over adversity, the country, born out of the violence of apartheid, has so far been unable to overcome the profound damage inflicted upon it – mired in racial tensions, a culture of gun crime, corruption and violence – and failing institutions seemingly unable to resuscitate the dreams of a nation.
A new film from Vaughan Sivell, director of the critically acclaimed 'Mr Calzaghe’.
