Storyline

When Nelson Mandela was finally released from prison, courageous South African musicians broke through Apartheid's barriers to form a 500-voice, multiracial youth choir. Threatened with bombs and thwarted at every turn, they prevailed and railroaded across the country aboard The Peace Train. Singing their way into the hearts, minds and soul of a divided nation in the midst of a civil war, they promoted a peaceful transition to democracy and went on to become Mandela's face of the new nation. When Voices Meet documents the trials, tribulations and triumphs of those musician activists and young choir members. They performed together for seven years; never lost touch with one another; and reunited 20 years later to tell their stories.

Winner of Best Documentary, Best Director & Best Original Soundtrack
28 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

This first feature-length documentary by director Nancy Sutton Smith was filmed in South Africa from 1992-2013. It won Best Documentary, Best Director and Best Original Soundtrack at its USA Premiere in Washington in August 2015.

It's inspirational, educational, joyful and thought-provoking with archival footage from the apartheid-era in South Africa setting the stage for a massive apartheid-busting undertaking by two South African musicians, Sharon Katz and Nonhlanhla Wanda. Born on opposite sides of apartheid's barriers, they risked their lives and their careers to form the country's first, 500-voice, mixed race performing group and then tour it across the country aboard The Peace Train.

It's an extraordinary film and a forceful reminder of the power of each of us to right the wrongs.
