Alexandra My Alexandra is a six part documentary series spanning 100 years of the pioneering South African township. Built on the boggy edges of Johannesburg, it is known for its musicians, poets, political leaders, sporting heroes and gangsters. The series includes interviews with over sixty people including Nelson Mandela, whose time in Alexandra inspired his political activism; Louisa Rivers, who truanted from school to join the 1956 Women’s March on Parliament, and the youth leaders who made South Africa ungovernable in the 1980s, leading to the downfall of apartheid. Overwhelmingly their memories of struggle are human ones, of beating the odds in the township the authorities couldn’t rule. And so they are stories of love, births, laughter and pain, overcoming incredible hardships with a spirit that is unquenchable and makes Alexandra so unique and vibrant, even up until today.
