Preceded by a screening of MANDELA: LONG WALK TO FREEDOM
Nominated for three Golden Globes (including Best Actor for Idris Elba and Best Song for Bono and bandmates The Edge, Adam Clayton, Larry Mullen Jr., alongwith Brian Burden), Mandela provides an emotionally riveting overview of five decades in the life of a man who changed the world, South Africa’s Nelson Mandela. In turns a gripping political thriller and engrossing biopic, the film was a labor of love, taking 15 years to make it to the screen. That proves to be a blessing, as Idris Elba is the perfect actor to embody the spirit of Mandela, just as Naomie Harris, his co-star, is perfectly cast as Nelson’s wife and comrade, Winnie Mandela. Join these co-stars, along with composers Bono and The Edge, as they talk about their inspiration in making this stunning tribute to truth, justice and reconciliation.
