Working over 10 years, filming throughout the world, interviewing dozens of the major players — Connie Field constructs an epic 7-film history (divided here into 3 parts) that will stand as the final word on how a violent, racist, intractable government was destroyed by the concerted efforts of men and women working on multiple fronts inside and outside South Africa for more than three decades. We close with another director, Kareem Mortimer, whose film, a first feature, "Children of God," screens at Frameline 34, at the Castro Theatre, at 9:30 PM this evening.
