MK Mandela’s Army chronicles the lives of former uMkhonto we Sizwe (MK) members. An intergenerational reflection on the all consuming call to take up arms for South Africa’s liberation, heeded by young men and women - some barely in their teens - who gave up their lives and any future to risk death for the dream of a free South Africa. The young guerilla fighters of yesteryear are now ageing veterans. How will history remember them? Where are they now and how have they reconciled a past committed to liberation and a present day reality almost forgetful of their contribution to a free South Africa?
