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.
