‘Winnie Mandela’ Comes to DVD and Blu-Ray December 3

'Winnie Mandela' Comes to DVD and Blu-Ray December 3

One Village Entertainment has announced the December 3 DVD and Blu-Ray release of Winnie Mandela, the epic biopic starring Jennifer Hudson and Terence Howard

WINNIE MANDELA follows the story of a proud young Winnie (Hudson), who finds love with a rising political star, Nelson Mandela (Howard), after moving from a remote tribal village to the sprawling metropolis of Johannesburg, South Africa. When Nelson is imprisoned for protesting the brutal Apartheid government, Winnie works tirelessly to win his freedom and to carry on his message of peace and equality.  Her struggle to keep the Mandela dream alive was rewarded by years of persecution and imprisonment, including 18 months of solitary confinement. Throughout, her resolve to fight for her freedom, her family and her country never wavered.  Her leadership and unconquerable spirit caught the attention of the world and earned her the name “the mother of the nation.”  

I had a chance to interview the film’s director, Darrell Roodt, about the film last year, and you can find that piece HERE
