Robert Mugabe: Villain or Hero?
With unprecedented access to Mugabe and his entourage, Roy Agyemang explores the reality behind the headlines.
In his directorial debut, Roy Agyemang explores the reality behind the headlines in a feature-length documentary. What was intended to be a three-month project about Robert Mugabe, the leader of Zimbabwe, turned into a life-changing three-year project. With unprecedented access to Mugabe and his entourage and drawing on a wealth of news footage, including Bob Marley’s historic appearance at independence celebrations in 1980, this personal, highly accessible and often amusing film raises wider serious issues about the relationship between African leaders and the West in the fight for African minerals and land.
This screening will be accompanied by a panel and audience discussion
