When the South African government promises to 'eradicate the slums' and begins to evict shack dwellers far outside the city, three friends who live in Durban's vast shantytowns refuse to be moved. DEAR MANDELA follows their journey from their shacks to the highest court in the land as they invoke Nelson Mandela's example and become leaders in a growing social movement. By turns inspiring, devastating and funny, the film offers a new perspective on the role that young people can play in political change and is a fascinating portrait of South Africa coming of age. Dear Mandela won multiple awards including Grand Jury Prize at the Brooklyn Film Festival and Best South African Documentary at the Durban International Film Festival. "Dear Mandela"is the centerpiece of a global community engagement project that educates slum residents about their housing rights and inspires young people to become leaders. Strategic screening tours of the film have taken place in Haiti, Mali and Brazil, India, Nigeria and South Africa.
