Mandela Film Series Continues with "Behind the Rainbow" on 7 June 2018

The #Mandela100 Film Series continues on 7 June 2018 at 19h30! With Jihan El-Tahri the organisers have invited one of the best documentary filmmakers of our time - with her film "Behind the Rainbow" she has covered 100 years of ANC history!
