Favorite

Goodbye Bafana, also released in the United States as The Color of Freedom, is a 2007 release. Based on James Gregory's memoir, Goodbye Bafana: Nelson Mandela, My Prisoner, My Friend, it is set during South Africa's apartheid period. Nelson Mandela is isolated and imprisoned on Robben Island. Gregory is his jailer and the two develop a relationship during the activist's incarceration. The guard has a connection with Mandela based on his ability to speak the tribal language, Xhosa.

Over a two decade period, we witness the influence of Mandela on the guard's racial prejudices and perceptions.
