  • Thomas Allen Harris's Twelve Disciples of Nelson Mandela takes on an intensely dramatic topic -- the struggle against apartheid -- yet paradoxically transforms its powerful source material into a stiff and sometimes awkward tutorial.

  • Thomas Allen Harris's film offers a fascinating glimpse of the early campaigns of the African National Congress, and the way childhood memories can obscure larger truths.

Audience Reviews for POV

    [font=Century Gothic]"Twelve Disciples of Nelson Mandela" is a personal and historical documentary made by Thomas Allen Harris about his stepfather, B. Pule "Lee" Leinaeng who died in 2000. The documentary consists of reconstructions, archival footage, interviews with surviving participants and other people of interest. Harris goes back to Lee's roots in Bloemfontein, South Africa to trace the beginnings of his involvement with the African National Congress(ANC) and his fight against Apartheid. Lee left South Africa with eleven other young ANC members in 1960 for further education and military training abroad.(Pacifism was having no results against an increasingly brutal regime.) 1960 was also the year of independence for many African countries.[/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]"Twleve Disciples of Nelson Mandela" is a very informative and enlightening documentary about what it means to be an exile and why it is sometimes necessary to leave one's country as part of a mass movement against a repressive government. It may not always be to escape death and imprisonment but also to promote the cause to the outside world and to raise funds. There is a cost to be paid when a person cuts himself off from one's native land and family. It could be a one way ticket and many of those who left in 1960 did not return until the 1990's.[/font]
