‘Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom’ HRAFF Fundraiser
Join the Human Rights Arts & Film Festival for its 2014 film fundraiser—a special preview screening of ‘Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom’. This eagerly awaited Hollywood blockbuster has received rave reviews, and Idris Elba (‘The Wire’, ‘The Office’, ‘Thor’), who plays Mandela, is an early Oscar tip.
Its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival wowed audiences and ended with an eight minute standing ovation. Based on his autobiography of the same name, this epic motion picture spans Nelson Mandela’s extraordinary life, from his childhood in a rural village through to his inauguration as the first democratically elected President of South Africa.
‘Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom’ is the thrilling story of an ordinary man who rose to the challenge of his times and triumphed—an intimate portrait of the making of a modern icon.
