In partnership with Lois and Walter Capps Project
Special pre-show discussion with former Second Lady Tipper Gore and former U.S. Representative Lois Capps

The remarkable life of South African revolutionary, president and world icon Nelson Mandela (Idris Elba) takes center stage. Though he had humble beginnings as a herd boy in a rural village, Mandela became involved in the anti-apartheid movement and co-founded the African National Congress Youth League. His activities eventually led to his imprisonment on Robben Island from 1964 to 1990. In 1994, Mandela became the first president of democratic South Africa.

Join former Santa Barbara mayor and film critic Hal Conklin for a selection of great stories that touch the soul and draw out the best in humanity. These stories teach about forgiveness, loving others, and loving ourselves, and provide a renewed enthusiasm for living life with compassion and grace. Drawn from the syndicated film series “Cinema In Focus,” these presentations will blend together great film with audience conversations and Q&A.
