This urgent documentary chronicles the rise of the #FeesMustFall student movement which ignited into one of South Africa’s most militant national revolts.
Director Rehad Desai captures the urgency of the movement’s demand for free, decolonised education, which morphed into a wider rallying cry for social justice: fees must fall, outsourcing must fall, poverty must fall, racism must fall – everything must fall.
