A trailer for the Nelson Mandela biopic, Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom, has been released. Starring British actor Idris Elba (Takers, Pacific Rim), the film is a chronicle of Mandela’s life journey from his childhood in a rural village to his inauguration as the first democratically elected president of South Africa.

Often described as “the father of the nation”, Mandela is one of the founding members of the African National Congress (ANC), which fought against the South African government’s policy of apartheid, or racial segregation. In 1964, Mandela was imprisoned for planning acts of sabotage, and spent 27 years behind bars. Released in 1990, Mandela was voted in as president in 1994. He celebrated his 95th birthday on Thursday (July 18). Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom is set for release November 29. Check out the film’s trailer below.
