Screened on 14 July 2011

Runtime: 108'

mandela If ever a world leader seemed born to take up the cause that would define his life, it was Nelson Mandela, the South African leader whose story is chronicled in Jo Menell and Angus Gibson's biographical film, ''Mandela.'' As one after another colleague, former wife, family member or friend recalls, Mr. Mandela, who is descended from royal blood, always had singular leadership qualities and a pronounced kingly aura.

"Directors Jo Menell and Angus Gibson give us an up-close and personal portrait of this hero… This inspiring and edifying screen biography celebrates Mandela as a freedom fighter and a liberator – the father of a nation."

The film was introduced by Ms Noludi Dikweni, Minister Plenipotentiary, South African Embassy.
