Twitchvision: Jason Gorber Talks Mandela And Movies

Jason Gorber, Featured Critic
Slightly different take this week, as the passing of Madiba has (justifiably) captured the world's attention, while the coincidental release of a film starring Idris Elba is set to make its wide release. We were to chat about other releases, but talk of Nelson Mandela, and biopics in general, took up our allotted time.

We chatted about Under African Skies, the documentary by Joe Berlinger about the recording of the Graceland record, and the political and musical circumstances that surrounded that project. I do encourage those who may dismiss it as a mere music doc to take a look at it, it very much ties in with far more nuanced take on the latter part of the Apartheid regime, and how the culture of South Africa was represented during that time period.
