Winnie Mandela : [Filmography]

During the more than a quarter of a century that her husband spent in jail, Winnie Mandela was persecuted by the white authorities, first to put pressure on her husband, and then because she developed as a leader in her own right. Under enormous constraints, Winnie Mandela slowly developed a heroic public relations campaign that kept Nelson’s image alive, and the attention of the world on South Africa.
