Glasgow, Love & Apartheid - Smithdown Social Club - Liverpool

Glasgow, Love & Apartheid tells the story of one family's fight against apartheid from both Scotland and South Africa. Director, DK Chetty, follows her parents a mixed, and once 'illegal' couple on a trip back to South Africa where the family stories begin to unfold - protests, an uncle in jail, an ANC arms cache, a cousin on the run from the security forces and a revelation about Mandela - in hiding. It's a film about the past and present, truth and reconciliation and a hymn to Glasgow. From South Africa to Scotland with Love. Film followed by DJ Stuart Borthwick playing old-school South African Kwaito and liberation dance from the African continent. An evening of documentary and dance
