This is the moving video released a few months back of Nelson Mandela, who died on 5 December aged 95. It features in the 21 Icons South Africa project, which celebrates the lives of 21 extraordinary South Africans who have captured the global imagination with their dignity, humanity, hard work and selfless struggle for a better world.
We all have the potential to be a Nelson Mandela, a Desmond Tutu. It is this simple yet powerful vision that has driven photographer and filmmaker Adrian Steirn to create the 21 Icons South Africa project. Through a series of short films and black-and-white photographic portraits, we are taken on a remarkable journey that explores the goodness of the human spirit. It shows how ordinary people have, quite simply, become extraordinary. More at www.21icons.com
