Projek Mandela ( Visual )

"In the late 1980s, Nelson Mandela stood alone against the apartheid state. In 48 secret meetings, the political prisoner faced a relentless barrage of questions from South Africa's intelligence officials. Not only did he hold his ground, eventually he convinced the apartheid regime that he possessed the leadership qualities and the political skill required to bury apartheid and transform the country. This film reveals for the first time the torturous journey that Mandela undertook on behalf of the vast Majority of South Africans."--Container

It discusses the building's evolvement from earthern fort to governor's residence and describes life within its walls.
