Through a chronological history of the South African liberation struggle, this documentary cites examples of the way that music was used in the fight for freedom. Songs united those who were being oppressed and gave those fighting a way to express their plight.

An excellent blend of archival footage/music and interviews to impart a powerful message and involving film. Lee Hirsch and his team have done an amazing job in cataloging the music and passion of the freedom movement in South Africa during apartheid. Whether one is a fan of music, a documentary enthusiast, has an interest in the anti-apartheid movement or in post colonial Africa, AMANDLA! is a must see piece of film making.
