Book - 2013
Rate this:
It's a movie tie-in unlike any other: a combination of dramatic recreations and history, featuring film stills alongside archival photographs of actual events; a narrative text drawn from LONG WALK TO FREEDOM, complemented by Mandela's own words and artefacts from his personal papers and archive, and first-person accounts from comrades who fought alongside him in the struggle against apartheid. This is Mandela in his own words beautifully interpreted through the lens of the film. Exclusive excerpts from the film script, lush, full-color panoramas of the South African landscapes where the film was shot on location, and interviews with the filmmakers plus commentary from the principal cast, combine to provide a unique view into this epic motion picture and its creation. Fans of the movie and Mandela admirers, whatever their age, will relish this exceptional and unparalleled portrait of the life of an extraordinary and beloved historical icon.
