last night with the French premiere of the film at the Paris headquarters of UNESCO,
ahead of its opening in France on 18 December. Producer Anant Singh,
director Justin Chadwick and actors Idris Elba, Naomie Harris and
Lindiwe Matshikiza presented the film. The Nelson Mandela Foundation
was represented by its Chairman, Professor Njabulo Ndebele.
Alain Terzian, and foreign ambassadors and heads of NGO’s based in Paris.
is appropriate as the organisation promotes education, culture, heritage
and freedom of expression which are issues that Madiba championed.
We encouraged with amazing reaction from the Paris audience.
The film opened as the Number One film in South Africa last week
and we expect the film to perform equally well in France.
We are also delighted that the chair of the Nelson Mandela Foundation,
Professor Ndebele was able to join us at the event," said producer, Anant Singh.
