Nelson Mandela’s release from prison in 1990 was celebrated around the world, as South Africa finally ended its brutal system of apartheid, which had denied black citizens the most basic civil rights. By the time of his death (the day this film premiered in London) Nelson Mandela was universally adored and respected, and stood as an icon for peace. Featuring British actor Idris Elba, this film recalls a time when Mandela was labelled a dangerous terrorist and jailed for sabotage, and follows his incredible, inspirational story through to his incarceration and triumphant release.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
