DVD: Mugabe and the White African, For retail & rental (Dogwoof Pictures)
Sunday 09 May 2010
This revelatory British documentary tells the story of two white farmers in Zimbabwe who are striving to stop their land being "acquisitioned" by the government.
Although their struggles have ground on for years, the film focuses on their international court case against Robert Mugabe in Namibia in 2008. It excels as a courtroom drama, a nerve-racking thriller, a ringing call to arms, and, most of all, a humbling portrait of the unflappable, indefatigable farmers and their families.
