(Sydney) Maree v. State Teaser


I was stumbling around the internet and I found this teaser for a documentary about South African-American Sydney Maree, one of the greatest runners in Villanova history, directed and produced by his son. 

His blurb:
Maree v. State explores the life of my father, Sydney Maree, whose career serves as a metaphor for the evolution of the South African state, from Apartheid to modern democracy. This feature-length documentary traces the parallels between Maree's personal story and the historical, political and cultural contexts within which his life can be understood. Of particular interest are the ways in which his experiences can reveal inconvenient national truths, which have been covered up or subsumed in official histories and collective memory.
