Official Exhibition, is a new world class exhibition on Nelson Mandela’s extraordinary life, curated from the extensive collections of the Nelson Mandela Foundation in Johannesburg. pictureDRIFT was invited by Interp and iEC Exhibitions to create two animated films for the exhibition. This film occupies a twelve metre floor to ceiling screen in the second room of the exhibition. Narrated by Mandela himself, the animated film explores the stories of Mandela's early years growing up in the Transkei with his family and Xhosa tribal elders, his journey through ceremony and his formal education at Healdtown College. Present day panoramic landscape photography by Matthew Willman forms a majestic stage for Mandela's memories rendered in an expressive illustration style by Simon Cowell.
