Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom - Official Trailer
As much as it would’ve been refreshing to have seen South African actors occupy these roles, to see a Mandela film tackle periods of the man’s life that include his militant form of activism against the tyrannical apartheid government is long overdue.
Interesting choice of song for the trailer. K’Naan’s ‘Waving Flag’ has become the Western world’s go-to ‘hope and inspiration’ track for things about Africa. Wasn’t it also used during the 2010 FIFA World Cup hosted in South Africa?
Feel free to share your thoughts on this film/trailer.
