A new film about South African President Nelson Mandela will open across the country later this month. Mandela the film chronicles the life of the former political prisoner turned president. Directed by South African filmmakers Joe Menell and Angus Gibson, the film is the only official biography of Nelson Mandela. And as a result, the filmmakers had unprecedented access to Mandela and to a 100 hours of extraordinary archival footage.

GUESTS:

JOE MENELL, the co-director of Mandela. He was once banned from working in South Africa because of a television series he had produced.

ANGUS GIBSON, the co-director of Mandela. He made anti- apartheid films and social documentaries in South Africa during the 1980s.

ZINZI MANDELA, the daughter of South African President Nelson Mandela.
