An extraordinary documentary of a book in which geography and history blend, and collective life and image of a nation is focused through the life of one individual. Colour photos make this a vivid portrait of the real South Africa - rural areas, poor locations and affluent city centres Using a thousand images from past and present, the book moves from rural villages to the hectic metropolis, from District Six to Robben Island. It traces Mandela's footsteps, through sites of public struggle and private development, and illuminates many hidden places in the struggle against Apartheid.
