Mandela: Son of Africa, Father of a Nation
A documentary that chronicles the life of South African leader Nelson Mandela. Mandela is probably best known for his 27 years of imprisonment, and for bringing an end to apartheid. But this film also sheds light on the little-known early period of Mandela's life, including his childhood, adolescence, career in law, and first marriage. In addition, we learn about Mandela's winning, resilient personality during those hard times -- and how it served to forge a man capable of liberating his country from racial oppression.

‑ Steve Rhodes, Internet Reviews
"The official film biography of the first democratically elected president of the racially united South Africa."
