Please join us for an exclusive movie screening of MANDELA: LONG WALK TO FREEDOM based on Nelson Mandela's 1994 autobiography of the same name, MANDELA: LONG WALK TO FREEDOM that chronicles the inspirational life of Nelson Mandela as an international icon and one of the world’s most revered leaders.
The film spans Mandela’s exceptional life journey from his early years as a herd boy in South Africa’s rural Cape region, to his days as a lawyer and Apartheid resistance leader, and on to his twenty-seven years spent in Robben Island prison before becoming the nation’s first democratically elected President. The film also highlights his relationship with his first wife, Evelyn, and second wife, Winnie Mandela whom he shared a passionate and troubled love affair that endured over decades.
Directed by Justin Chadwick (THE FIRST GRADER, THE OTHER BOLEYN GIRL) and adapted by Academy Award® nominated screenwriter William Nicholson (SHADOWLANDS, GLADIATOR, LES MISERABLES). Acclaimed actor Idris Elba (THE WIRE, LUTHER, PROMETHEUS, PACIFIC RIM, THOR) stars, with Naomie Harris (THE FIRST GRADER, SKYFALL) playing the role of his wife Winnie Mandela.
A stellar South African supporting cast is headlined by Tony Kgoroge (INVICTUS), Riaad Moosa (MATERIAL), Fana Mokoena (World War Z, Machine Gun Preacher), Jamie Bartlett (Beyond Borders), Deon Lotz (SKOONHEID, SLEEPER’S WAKE), Simo Mogwaza (DISTRICT 9), Terry Pheto (TSOTSI), Thapelo Mokoena (NOTHING FOR MAHALA), and Praise Singer and Poet of the Nation, Zolani Mkiva.
