This official companion book to the epic major feature film Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom retraces the life of Nelson Mandela, weaving together his own words and historic humanitarian efforts with cinematic narrative and exclusive behind-the-scenes content. It's a movie tie-in unlike any other: a combination of dramatic recreations and history, featuring film stills alongside archival photographs of actual events; commentary from the acclaimed cast and filmmakers plus interviews with Mandela's own family and comrades; excerpts from his books and personal papers, with lush, full-color panoramas of the South African landscapes where the film was shot on location. Fans of the movie and Mandela admirers, whatever their age, will relish this unique look at the making of an epic motion picture and the life of a beloved historical icon.
"I have walked that long road to freedom.
I have tried not to falter. I have made missteps along the way. But I have
discovered the secret that after climbing
a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb. I have taken a moment here to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance I have come. But I can only rest for a moment, for with
freedom comes responsibility, and I dare not linger, for my walk is not yet ended.”
