The Power of Words: Nelson Mandela Foundation & Tribeca Film Institute
from James Cecil.
The Nelson Mandela Foundation & Tribeca Film Institute launched “The Power of Words” initiative in April 2013.
Projected in artful synchronization across 16 displays in New York’s iconic Times Square, “The
Power of Words” launch video showcases some of the most compelling passages from Nelson Mandela’s writings in prison and as president. “The Power of Words” 3-minute launch video was presented each night in April.
Throughout 2013, five directors, each with a unique perspective on modern life, will produce five short films with contemporary story-lines to convey Mandela’s timeless and unconventional wisdom to new generations.
