VIVA NELSON MANDELA: A Hero For All Seasons is a celebration of an icon, a titan of our times and a giant among men. In the year of his 90th birthday, he remains a man at the center of attention, not only in South Africa, but around the world as a moral leader, an elder statesman and an exceptional human being.
The film takes the viewer on an intimate journey behind the headlines and away from the public eye and looks at the man himself as a loyal friend, a dependable comrade, a trusted confidant, a respected mentor, and a man who has touched and transformed countless lives. For the first time his complete story is being told - a life of struggle, humanity, destiny and greatness is recalled and celebrated by those who knew him best and who worked with him in the quest to break the chains of oppression.
Featuring exclusive interviews with politicians, close friends and comrades of Mandela, including Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Oliver Tambo, Pik Botha, and more! Viva Nelson Mandela is the definitive biography of this great leader.
