The profound effect of black South African freedom music on the eventual dissolution of apartheid is the subject of this soul-stirring and inspirational documentary. Weaving interviews with those on both sides of the conflict, as well as archival footage of Nelson and Winnie Mandela, F.W. de Klerk and Jesse Jackson, they illustrate the crucial role protest songs played in the nearly 50-year struggle of the nation's black citizenry. Features many previously unrecorded songs of liberation, and music by numerous renowned musicians, including former exiles Miriam Makeba, Hugh Masekela and Abdullah Ibrahim. Named for the Xhosa word for "power", "Amandla!" lives up to its title, telling an uplifting story of human courage, resolve and triumph.
