Though there have been other films about the former South African president, "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom" has long had Mandela’s approval and the cooperation of his family. It premiered Sunday in Johannesburg with much of Mandela’s family in attendance.

"Mandela" opens in U.S. theaters Nov. 29.
