Storyline

Bram Fischer led the defense at the Rivonia Trial saving Mandela and other leaders from execution and when all his comrades were jailed or exiled, he took a defiant stand, living in disguise as Apartheid's "most wanted" until his capture and life imprisonment in 1966. Love, Communism, Revolution & Rivonia reveals Fischer's journey from the heart of Afrikaner aristocracy to leading the South African Communist Party in the struggle against Apartheid. Interviews with his daughters, comrades, colleagues and writers Nadine Gordimer and Martin Meredith combine with dramatized Trial Statements, archive and Fischer's own footage to tell this courageous story spanning a century of South African history.
