A global outpouring of admiration and love has followed the passing of the great Nelson Mandela. He has been called the father of a nation and the greatest African. And while history has many who have stood up for the rights of their own, fewer still have extended themselves to advocate for the rights of others.

For more than 25 years, film makers have attempted to tell Mandela’s story from varying angles and differing lenses. Perhaps this is testament to the greatness of the man himself. Below is a compilation of some of the movies that have featured the man and those around him.
