The 16th Man

‘The 16th Man’ tells the emotional story of the end of apartheid in South Africa, the start of Nelson Mandela’s new government with its goal of racial unity, and how the South African rugby team’s victory in the 1995 Rugby World Cup brought a healing process to the country. The film highlights how Mandela used the game of rugby to make a deeply divided, distressed nation whole at a time when traditional politics were failing, and how the 1995 Rugby World Cup win became the turning point in South Africa’s history.
