A highly acclaimed South African filmmaker who has produced more than 80 films, including the feature film, Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, in 2013, which is based on Nelson Mandela’s autobiography. He brought Danny Schechter to South Africa to produce a behind-the-scenes documentary on that project, and the two worked together on other films as well, including Countdown to Freedom, which documented the first democratic elections in South Africa, and A Hero for All Seasons, which they produced as a tribute to Mandela when he stepped down as president of South Africa in June 1999.
