Mrs Mandela : [Filmography]

A film about one of the most extraordinary and controversial women in recent history. When Nelson Mandela was released after 27 years in prison on 11th February 1990, the entire world saw Winnie Mandela walking at his side. MRS MANDELA, played by Oscar nominee Sophie Okonedo, focuses on how Winnie survived the 27 years without him. Part triumph, part tragedy and an unravelling love story, the film charts Winnie Mandela's progress from innocent country girl to politicised fighter against apartheid, from adoring wife to revolutionary firebrand, and asks the question: was she a saint or sinner... Cast: Sophie Okonedo, David Harewood, David Morrissey

Nelson Mandela : Au nom de la liberté

Nelson Mandela is a legend. A icon. A name. Nowadays, 90 year-old Mandela has no longer any official responsibilities, and he devotes a lot of time fighting against AIDS through his foundation. His life became a destiny. It began in a village of Transkei province and was crown by a Nobel Peace Prize. An unbelievable political life which contrasts with a dramatic personal life. Who is really Nelson Mandela? This film tries to answer this question, by setting Mandela's story back in the context of his country: South Africa.
