This is an exceptional documentary about an amazing man Nelson Mandela. It includes actual video of South Africa when Mandiba began his struggle during its time of apartheid. His story is the story of the transition of South Africa from one of apartheid to that of a democracy. It is a must see for everyone. There is much to learn about and from this very special person about his struggle for equality, to be able to live his life to its fullest and with dignity in spite of all its adversities.

An outstanding, insightful documentary exploring the life and times of Nelson Mandela, from his earliest years to the post-presidency era. There is a wealth of commentary from those who knew him well, and the documentary sheds light on various aspects of Mandela's life and the life of his country in ways you might not have known. A very informative and interesting examination of one of the greatest figures of the 20th century.
