In 1991, Nelson Mandela was liberated, apartheid was abolished, and South Africa entered into a brand new phase of its history. After a period of euphoria, different tensions arose, and it was in this climate that people prepared themselves to participate in the landmark elections in which all citizens of South Africa would vote for the first time. Three filmmakers from the Direct Cinema Workshop documented how it was politically and emotionally on that historic day in five very different locations, with a colorful “cast” of unique folk: Julie Henderson, Thulani Mokoena, and Donne Rundle.
