The topic of apartheid and the struggles black activist Steve Biko endures to prevent it are captured on film in Cry Freedom. The film stars Denzel Washington, who plays an impressive Biko, who befriends newspaper chief editor, Donald Woods (played by Kevin Kline).
Donald Woods - Kevin Kline
TriviaIt was Denzel Washington’s impressive role as a doctor on TV's St Elsewhere that caught the attention of Cry Freedom director Richard Attenborough. As a result, he cast him as Biko in the movie.
Cry Freedom is a long film, so it was shown in two 80-minute parts at the movie theaters and shown in two parts a week apart on television.
Denzel Washington won for Best Actor In A Supporting Role for the role of Steve Biko in Cry Freedom.
George Fenton, Jonas Gwangwa won for Best Original Score for Cry Freedom.
