Amandla! A Revolution in Four-Part Harmony is a soul-stirring and inspirational film that tells the story of black South African freedom music and the central role it played against apartheid.

The first film to specifically consider the music that sustained and galvanized black South Africans for more than 40 years, Amandla!'s focus is on the struggle's spiritual dimension, as articulated and embodied in song.

Amandla! weaves together exclusive interviews with black and white South African dissidents; rare, never-before-seen film footage; many previously unrecorded songs of liberation, and music by numerous renowned musicians, including former exiles Miriam Makeba, Huga Masekela and Abdullah Ibrahim.

Named for the Xhosa word for "power", Amandla! lives up to its title, telling an uplifting story of human courage, resolve and triumph.
