Robert Mugabe… what happened?
Un film de Simon Bright
2011, disponible en 52' et 80'
Robert Mugabe… what happened? charts the Shakespearean rise and fall of the man who led a very successful African country, and then ruined it. Mugabe was damned as a terrorist, then knighted by Queen Elizabeth II, and is still in power more than 30 years later. The film explores what happened trhough interviews with some of his closest comrades. It assembles a unique collection of Southern African archives to powerfully evoke each of the decades of Mugabe’s reign. This is a complex and compelling view of Zimbabwe the country and Mugabe the man.
