Ordinary People: A Day With the President : [Filmography]

According to Keyan Tomaselli, The Amy Biehl story is an excellently made production which appeals emotionally to viewers in its quest to understand the nature of conflict in South Africa, and why Biehl became a victim.

News footage of her funeral and counter protests in support of Amy are shown. We meet her UWC colleagues; Allister Sparks; Robert Schrire; Chris Hani’s widow; the prosecutor and Nelson Mandela.
