Fractured Lives

Fractured Lives is a memoir of one woman’s experiences as a documentary filmmaker covering the wars in southern Africa during the 1980s and 1990s. Growing up in South Africa in a politically active family, as daughter of Rivonia Trialists, Hilda and Rusty Bernstein, Toni became a filmmaker in exile in the wake of the Rivonia Trial. Interweaving autobiography, history and social commentary with frontline reporting, it offers a personal female perspective on a traditionally male subject.
