In 1995, a newly democratic South Africa rallied behind its rugby team for the first time since the end of apartheid, sharing the victory when the Springboks became unlikely World Cup champions. But the story of sport’s critical role in the struggle to create a free and equal South Africa began long before. Fair Play, a new documentary by acclaimed filmmaker Connie Field, tells the dramatic story behind Clint Eastwood’s film Invictus, following the athletes and activists around the world who refused to play with apartheid and pushed South Africa’s teams out of international sports competitions. Calling for fairness on and off the field, citizens around the world leveraged sports to bring the human rights crisis in South Africa to the forefront of global attention. Part of a powerful new series called Have You Heard From Johannesburg?, Fair Play shows how sports boycotts helped bring one of the world’s most brutally repressive systems to its knees.

Contact us if you’d like to learn more about the Have You Heard from Johannesburg? Campaign or host a screening of Fair Play in 2010 to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of Nelson Mandela’s release, expand the dialogue around the World Cup and connect audiences to ongoing struggles for human rights.
