#RedCarpetThursday Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom
We’re airing the Nelson Mandela biopic tonight at 8:30PM on e.tv and on Friday, 21 July at 9:15PM on eMovies+.
With Mandela Day coming up on Tuesday, 18 July there’s no better way to commemorate the late former South African president Nelson Mandela’s life and legacy than watching the biopic Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom.
The movie tells his story from humble beginnings as a herd boy in the rural village of Mvezo to his involvement in fighting apartheid by co-finding the African National Congress Youth League (ANCYL) leading to his imprisonment on Robben Island for 27 years. And ultimately being inaugurated to be the first democratically elected president of South Africa in 1994.
Produced by Anat Singh, the movie boasts a stellar cast including British actors Idris Elba (Nelson Mandela), Naomie Harris (Winnie Mandela) and our very own award-winning actress Terry Phetho as Mandela’s first wife Evelyn.
