Nelson Mandela is one of the most important political activists of his generation. As the leader of the African National Congress, Mandela was one of the most eloquent and powerful spokesmen against the Apartheid regime in South Africa, and even through he was sentenced to life behind bars in 1964 for his efforts to create a military wing for the ANC, he remained a powerful symbol in the battle against racial inequality in South Africa. After his release in 1990, Mandela continued to campaign for an end to minority rule, an era that came to an close in 1994 when he was elected president of South Africa in the nation's first election which allowed all citizens to freely participate. Mandela left office in 1999, but has continued to work tirelessly as a voice for human rights around the world. Filmmaker Catherine Meyburgh offers a moving portrait of the life and work of Nelson Mandela in the documentary Viva Mandiba: A Hero For All Seasons (aka Viva Nelson Mandela), which includes interviews with such friends and colleagues as Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Pik Botha, Oliver Tambo and many more.
