FULL DESCRIPTION

In this engaging documentary, filmmaker and human rights lawyer Shameela Seedat tracks Thuli Madonsela, South Africa's first female Public Protector, as she builds her second case against the country's President, Jacob Zuma. Despite having to deal with allegations of spying, humiliation in parliament, and numerous death threats, Madonsela had already forced Zuma to return public money unlawfully spent on the construction of his private home. Now, in her final year in office, she attempts to prove that the President is allowing business partners of his son, Duduzane, to systematically take over government in order to secure massive financial gain. The film ask important questions about fighting government corruption while the moral crime of inequality in South Africa remains ongoing and generates far less concern in the media. Whispering Truth to Power is an insightful portrait of a remarkable woman who has devoted her life to public office and defending justice in an increasingly conflicted and divided country.
