Winnie - the legacy - a young woman's leadership (Film & Discussion)


Winnie - the legacy - a young woman's leadership (Film & Discussion)

As part of its Educate & Empower series, Blaksox teams-up with Kush Films! Hosted by GEEDA they join forces to bring the multi-award winning and controversial documentary film, Winnie to UK audiences with a special  young women’s leadership focus.

“She was the barometer for the political temperature in the country and brushed patriarchal and conservative conventions aside, within her own culture, by keeping a finger on the pulse of the youth and by leading from the front.”

Winnie,  a documentary film by Pascale Lamche is a powerful portrayal of Winifred Zanyiwe Madikizela-Mandela, a woman of dramatic presence and overwhelming charisma, who passed away aged 81 years on 2nd April 2018. The film, based on intimate interviews with Winnie, those close to her, as well as her enemies, draws attention to the covert and often overt war being waged against women generally and most ferociously against black women in positions of power.

Insightful documentaries such as this focus on real life super heroines such as Auntie Winnie who have been subjected to a relentless often hidden propaganda war and whose legacy may otherwise be lost on the younger generation given the mainstream media which demonised her internationally, whilst raising Nelson Mandela, her husband as a saint.

By bringing this film to wider attention in the UK, we intend to increase awareness amongst women both young and old, and show how men blinded by misogyny, betray women’s leadership and how easily leaders can stray from the road of ethical leadership and righteousness in the greater struggle.
