MANDELA: LONG WALK TO FREEDOM

This insightful film chronicles the life of Nelson Mandela from childhood to his becoming the first democratically elected president of South Africa.

Mandela fought for equality and democracy and was imprisoned 27 years for attempting to overthrow the government and incite a civil war.

Scenes of violence and bloodshed are brilliantly recreated with the inclusion of actual footage that disturbingly depicts the terror of life suppressed by racism.

Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom is well documented and beautifully photographed with powerful performances from a predominantly South African cast led by British actor Idris Elba (Mandela).

This inspiring and heartfelt story of one man’s battle and sacrifice to make South Africa a better country is a fine tribute to the late Nelson Mandela. (MM)
