Reaffirms Nelson Mandela's critical importance as the very symbol of resistance to white rule based on the moral authority of human rights.

Nelson Mandela: Prisoner to President

This documentary was made in 1988 while Nelson Mandela was still serving a life sentence in a South African prison, convicted of planning a rebellion. It was a period of darkest repression, and Mandela’s role seemed to have diminished. By recording Mandela’s life in all its integrity, this documentary reaffirms his critical importance as the very symbol of resistance to white rule based on the moral authority of human rights.
