Soweto to Berkeley | Rebel Film Night: Incite/Insight | SoMa

“Soweto to Berkeley” (1987), 50 min, dir. Scott Wiseman

September 13, 2012

“Soweto to Berkeley” explores the student protests and debates at UC Berkeley in the 1980s which led to the Board of Regents decision to withdraw $3.1 billion in funds from companies doing business in South Africa. With the students’ tactics including occupations and direct actions, their organizing efforts, and their successes and failures, still resonate today, especially given current events in South Africa and the burgeoning BSD movement targeting the government of Israel.
