The State Against Mandela and the Others

By Nicolas Champeaux and Gilles Porte

With French subtitles

Sunday 10 February at 11:00 a.m, Cinema CINERAMA EMPIRE, rue de Carouge 72-74, Geneva

To mark the 100th birthday of Nelson Mandela, Ciné-ONU presents this must-see documentary that traces, through forgotten sound recordings, the historical trial of the former president of South Africa, where eight others were sentenced to death. Subjected to ruthless cross-examination, for one man, they remained firm and confronted the apartheid regime in. This film brings us back into the heat of the moment.

The screening will be followed by a discussion.

Presented in collaboration with the permanent missions of France and of South Africa to the UN Geneva, the Permanent Delegation of the European Union to the UN Geneva.

Hide details for About CINÉ-ONUAbout CINÉ-ONU

The United Nations Information Service in Geneva, in collaboration with Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, launched CINÉ-ONU Geneva in 2014.

Ciné ONU Geneva organizes regular film screenings on priority themes followed by debates on the issues raised. United Nations experts participate in the debates, as well as professors of the Graduate Institute and other specialists, and wherever possible, people involved in the film-making process.

The aim of Ciné-ONU Geneva is to raise awareness of UN priorities and activities among local audiences and to strengthen the profile of International Geneva. Film screenings are organized regularly alternating between The Maison de la Paix, the Palais des Nations, and in order to attract the general public, and with the collaboration of the Republic and Canton of Geneva, sometimes in down-town Geneva.

The concept of Ciné ONU was originally launched by the United Nations Regional Information Centre in Brussels in 2007, followed by "Ciné-ONU Portugal" and "Cine-ONU London". "Ciné-ONU Vienna" is organized by the United Nations Office in Vienna.
