One Village Entertainment and Image Entertainment have released an official trailer to “Winnie Mandela,” starring Academy Award winner Jennifer Hudson and Terrence Howard.
“Winnie Mandela” explores the personal and political life of the wife of renowned activist and revered former South African President, Nelson Mandela. The film tells the compelling story of one woman’s journey as she fights for the freedom of the man she loves and for the freedom of her people during the Apartheid era. Winnie Mandela depicts the struggle to keep the Mandela dream alive amidst her husband’s life imprisonment, her own time in solitary confinement, and her battle to overcome controversies that followed her through the years.
Winnie Mandela made 70 appearances on American network television, merited 20 stories in the New York Times, and was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. Known as South Africa’s brave and selfless “Mother of the Nation,” she became one of the most famous women in the world.
The film adaptation of Anné Mariè du Preez Bezdrob’s biography Winnie Mandela: A Life will hit theaters on September 6, 2013
