Deeply rooted in storytelling since the mid 1980’s, Anant Singh and Videovision Entertainment have documented South Africa’s journey from apartheid to democracy with captivating and rich feature films.

For over three decades, they have brought to the big screen watershed films that portray the South African miracle of transformation – from Place of Weeping, the first anti-apartheid film made in South Africa by South Africans, to ‘The Stick’; ‘Cry, the Beloved Country’; ‘Countdown to Freedom’ and the Academy Award nominated films ‘Yesterday’ and ‘Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom’.

In an international partnership with the Department of International Relations and Cooperation to mark the milestone of 30 Years of Democracy on 27 April 2024, Anant Singh and Videovision Entertainment have made available a selection of films to be screened at South African diplomatic mission events around the world.  These films which have special  resonance with the journey to democracy include, ‘Countdown to Freedom – The 10 Days That Changed South Africa’ which documents the first free and fair elections in 1994; the all-time classic, ‘Sarafina!’; the intense, suspense drama set against the backdrop of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, ‘Red Dust’; South Africa’s first Academy Award nominated film, ‘Yesterday’  and ‘Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom’ based on Nelson Mandela’s autobiography, Long Walk To Freedom. The screening programme kicks off on Freedom day this coming weekend with a commemorative screening of ‘Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom’ in Zurich, Switzerland.

In commemorating 30 Years of Democracy Singh and Videovision Entertainment have also produced a two-and-half-minute short film which showcases their productions over the years which have captured the hearts and minds of South Africans and people all over the world. This short film celebrates the indomitable spirit of South Africans and the committed cast and crew who worked tirelessly to make these timeless films a reality.
