Robert Mugabe… What Happened?

January 16th, 2011

Documentary (80′)

Robert Mugabe… what happened? directed by Simon Bright and produced by Michael Auret, had its World Premiere as the Opening Night film of the Encounters South Africa International Documentary Festival in Cape Town and went on to be the most watched film at the 2011 event, with additional screenings being added to accommodate the demand. Since then it has sold out at the International Documentary Film Festival in Amsterdam and will be the first African documentary to be get a wide cinema release in the UK.

Billed as the definitive account of Mugabe’s life, it dramatically illustrates his successful liberation and development of the country but also his ruthless and cunning retention of power at all costs.
