Long Walk to Freedom

A few short descriptions of the movie…

“A chronicle of Nelson Mandela’s life journey from his childhood in a rural village through to his inauguration as the first democratically elected president of South Africa.”


“It tells the story of his life, from his humble beginnings in the South African countryside to his work as an iconic anti-apartheid freedom fighter, and ends, after chronicling his twenty-year prison sentence, with his final victory and release.”


“Nelson Mandela, a South African lawyer, joins the fight against Apartheid. He is later sentenced to life imprisonment for his involvement in the armed resistance after the Sharpeville Massacre.”

The film also stars Naomie Harris (Skyfall) as Mandela’s wife Winnie, and features South African stars Tony Kgoroge, Riaad Moosa, Zolani Mkiva, Jamie Bartlett, Lindiwe Matshikiza, Deon Lotz and Terry Pheto.
