    We are delighted to announce that our coproduction with Born Free Media (SA) „Nelson Mandela: the myth & me“ will be screened at this years HOT DOCS film festival in Toronto, Canada! It will be shown on April 26th & 28th as well as May 4th. Khalo Matabane’s film has already been awarded with the IDFA Special Jury Award and broadcast by the BBC. On April 23rd next, it will be on arte. Matabane asks global thinkers, Apartheid-victims and Mandela’s entourage – ranging from the Dalai Lama to Colin Powell – to classify Nelson Mandela’s achievements, thereby providing a multi-facetted approach to his myth. His recent death at the high age of 95 offers the opportunity to reflect upon his legacy beyond sainthood.
