DescriptionMAMA I'M CRYING is a lively documentary about the personal story of a Black woman, Joyce Seroke, and a white Jewish woman, Betty Wolpert. Although born within a few years of each other and in the same town, Johannesburg in South Africa, they could have come from two completely different countries. Their memories of the past, while highlighting the differences of their formative years, also help them to understand the present. A beautiful and moving film which takes a critical and personal look at the resistance and struggle of the people of South Africa, and at the young people who are prepared to sacrifice their lives in the passionate fight against apartheid in the belief that 'Justice will prevail.'
