Celebrate Nelson Mandela Day In Times Square On July 18

On Thursday, July 18 at Time Square's red steps at Duffy Square, join the Nelson Mandela Foundation and TFI as we celebrate Nelson Mandela Day with a special screening of The Power of Words. At 7:15 pm we’ll screen this exclusive video installation featuring Nelson Mandela’s dynamic speeches made especially for the signs in Times Square.

This is part of our The Power of Words initiative, presented by Montblanc, in which we pair five established filmmakers, five young filmmakers from the Tribeca Film Fellows® program, and five Boys and Girls Clubs from across the United States to form teams that will storyboard, shoot, and edit a short narrative film based on the meaning of Nelson Mandela’s quotes.

We hope you'll attend this special event in Times Square and stay tuned to our blog for more updates on The Power of Words.

Above is a video looking back on the The Power of Words screening during Midnight Moment this past April.
