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]

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.
