Feturing the filmmaker, Ruth Cowan
Friday, March 23, 2012
Courting Justice features seven South African women judges, all of whom were New Democracy appointments. They serve on the Constitutional Court, the Supreme Court of Appeal and the provincial High Courts.
They speak to the filmmaker while at work in their court rooms and chambers, at home and in the communities in which they were raised. Courting Justice is a personal story, revealing the challenges these women confront working in a previously all-male institution and the sacrifices they make to effect the Constitution’s human rights promises.
