Algiers — The movie Mandela's Gun, chronicling Nelson Mandela's life and journey, is 95% ready and will be screened early 2016, said Tuesday, in Algiers, the minister of Culture, Azzeddine Mihoubi.

During a meeting with South African Minister of Arts and Culture, Nathi Mthethwa, who is on a working visit to Algeria, Mihoubi underlined that this cinematographic work is an "important historical testimony because it chronicles a phase of Algeria's fight" of this icon of resistance against the Apartheid.

"Mandela's Gun" is an Algerian-British production, directed by John Ervin (Great Britain).

Mihoubi also hailed this meeting which he dubbed "fruitful" and "which was about various issues, including the "strengthening" of cooperation in the field of cinema and arts in general, Algeria's role in the reinforcement of peace in the African continent as well as the reform of the Security Council."

For his part, the South African minister hailed the "friendly" relations between Algeria and South Africa and both countries' role on the continental plan, underlining the necessity to "highlight the two countries' cultural heritage in favour of joint projects," such as the movie on Mandela.
