Mandela Prepared to Die – Documentary
Matthew Willman was commissioned to document the life of Mandela as a short film documentary in the USA in 2018 for the National Underground Railroad Freedom Centre.
In August 2019 the educational short film documentary won a regional Emmy Award for education in the USA.
This 28 minute film documentary shares in intimate detail the extraordinary life of Nelson Mandela, and his commitment to liberating all the people of South Africa from Apartheid. The film focuses on the many challenges he faced, his servant leadership and in choosing forgiveness as his greatest weapon to defeat his then enemy.
After the film documentary is screened, Matthew Willman will lead a 20 minute presentation followed by a half hour Q&A session with his audience.
This is a rare once off opportunity to engage with Willman who for 10 years was commissioned to archive and document the life and times of Nelson Mandela for the Nelson Mandela Foundation creating Africa's first and only Presidential Library / Centre of Memory..
