Someone to Blame | | | | 54 min

For forty-one years after his death, and 16 years after his mother’s appearance before the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in search of closure, the circumstances that led to the young Ahmed Timol plunging from the 10th floor of the police station had remained shrouded in mystery.  Someone To Blame constructs an intimate overview that speaks to and for the families and friends of many other South Africans who died in detention during apartheid and brings the story full-circle as a result of the re-opened inquiry.
