While her husband was kept 27 years in jail, paradoxically safe and morally uncontaminated, Winnie rode the tumultuous violence of a life of struggle. Her repeated demonization has been amplified abroad to such a degree that the respect she elicits among those who still struggle in South Africa, is intriguing. The film constructs the compelling narrative of Winnie’s radical life for the first time, sifting the accusations and the disavowals that condemned her, in the context of the times.
