Have You Heard from Johannesburg: Fair Play

Director: Connie Field

Year: 2010

Plot: This fourth story of seven focuses on a particular kind of international politics, one that played a unique and powerful role in the destiny of South Africa: the battle against apartheid in sports. This wasn't the first time that sports played a part in world politics, but it is the only time that sports has so deeply affected the fate of a nation. Although economic sanctions are hard to win, cultural boycotts, especially sports, become the movement's first victories. The conflict shifts in time and space, over years, in many sports, and many nations. In the end, South Africa is changed forever and so too are other countries, as the sports world, from the Olympics to the rugby fields, declare they won't play with Apartheid.—Clarity Films
