Nelson Mandela - From Freedom To History : [Filmography]

3 Disc Set. "Life & Times: Nelson Mandela chooses from the many truly extraordinary intimate epiphanies of his life: Whether its the silent walk with his mother to the Royal Kraal as a nine-year old...or the fiery end to his first marriage...the ice-cream counter decision to face the death penalty...the moment when he was told of his mother and son's death on Robben Island...the moment PW Botha served him tea...or how he reacted to the girl who broke down at a Toronto school named in his honour. This captivating biography is replete with the adventure, mishap, fortune and inexhaustible resolve of a truly historic life. Project Mandela: In the late 1980s, Nelson Mandela stood alone against the apartheid state.This film reveals for the first time the torturous journey that Mandela undertook on behalf of the vast majority of South Africans. From 1977 to 1990, the apartheid government agonized over the release of Nelson Mandela. In recounting that process, Project Mandela grips like a political thriller. While Prime Minister PW Botha prevaricates over meeting Mandela in person, Mandela patiently seeks a meeting with Botha. The slow-brewing Project Mandela comes to fruition on 11 February 1990 when Mandela walks through the gates of Pollsmoor to freedom and into history.

Dear Mandela : [Filmography]

Destroyed homes, threats at gunpoint and high-court action, this battle by three young people to stand up for their rights is a testimony to people power. When the South African government promises to 'eradicate the slums' and begins to evict shack dwellers far outside the city, three friends who live in Durban's vast shantytowns refuse to be moved. Dear Mandela follows their journey from their shacks to the highest court in the land as they invoke Nelson Mandela's example and become leaders in a growing social movement. By turns inspiring, devastating and funny, the film offers a new perspective on the role that young people can play in political change and is a fascinating portrait of South Africa coming of age.
