The Jail Diary of Albie Sachs (1986)
The timely and compelling true story of a white South African lawyer imprisoned twice under the controversial 90-Day Law for his opposition to apartheid. It is based on Sachs’ own writings about his experiences during and after being incarcerated in the early 1960s for a total of 163 days, much of it in solitary confinement. The jail Diary of Albie Sachs brings to life events that shaped the news we see and hear today. It celebrates our spirit of resistance and brings to life the universal struggle of those who oppose repression.
