How did South Africa become the first country in the world to include Gay and Lesbian Rights in their Constitution?
The liberation struggle against apartheid in South Africa continues to inspire countless people around the world. THE MAN WHO DROVE WITH MANDELA, an award-winning documentary film, tells a little known aspect of this history: how South Africa came to be the first country in the world to enshrine gay and lesbian rights in the Constitution.
Cecil Williams, a gay white theater producer, used his privileges to fight for the liberation of all people in apartheid South Africa. THE MAN WHO DROVE WITH MANDELA tells his story. The film features interviews with Walter Sisulu, Albie Sachs, and many other freedom fighters, along with rare archive footage and a one-man tour de force performance by Corin Redgrave as Cecil Williams.
In 2010, South Africa celebrated twenty years of freedom for Nelson Mandela. We are thrilled and proud to announce that our film, THE MAN WHO DROVE WITH MANDELA, was included in the official celebrations.
