Tsr Exclusive: ‘Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom’ Interview w/ Director Justin Chadwick
29 December 2013 2:20 PM, PST
Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom is the long-gestating feature project about the famous South African leader Nelson Mandela and his wife, Winnie, each who played significant roles in their country’s revolution against apartheid. Boasting the biggest budget for a film to come from South Africa, the film (as directed by Justin Chadwick), features spirited embodiments from Idris Elba and Naomie Harris (playing Nelson and Winnie, respectively) in its life-encompassing presentation of their heroic efforts.
I sat down with Chadwick in an exclusive interview to discuss the film, its strength in extras, his disinterest in making the film “spinach,” and more.
Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom opened in Chicago on December 25.
