Movie Info

In an historical docudrama that was made for television, Sidney Poitier performs the role of Nelson Mandela, while Michael Caine plays the South African president Frederick Willem De Klerk, the man who instituted the reforms that would abolish apartheid, who released Nelson Mandela from nearly 30 years in prison, and who jointly received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1992 with Mandela for creating the transition to a nonracial democracy in South Africa. The negotiations between Mandela and De Klerk for an ordered, legal, and peaceful transition to a full democracy are the bulk of this film's content.
