Synopsis

The story of a white farmer who took the unprecedented step of challenging Robert Mugabe before the SADC (South African Development Community) international court, charging him and his government with racial discrimination and of violations of Human Rights.This film is an intimate account of one family’s astonishing bravery in the face of brutality, in a fight to protect their property. This is the only documentary feature film to have come out of Zimbabwe in recent years, where a total press ban still exists. Mugabe and the White African is perhaps the outside world’s only real glimpse of what it is like to live inside Mugabe’s Zimbabwe.
