Music for Mandela
Director: Jason Bourque, 2013
82 minutes – Canada
A theatrical documentary that explores the role music played in the extraordinary life of one of the world's most important icons. From Nelson Mandela's imprisonment to his release, to the present day celebrations of his legacy, the music born out of his inspirational journey is commented on by his closest friends, former exiled musicians, current international artists, and community volunteers, who use music today to motivate and educate. Combining striking visuals with freedom songs, pop music and hip-hop, this is a stirring tribute to the man himself and to the ultimate power of music.
