★★★★ "Superb... Thought-provoking, distressing, shockingly tense and always very sad, it is surely one of the best documentaries of the year." Time Out
★★★★ "Mugabe's Zimbabwe is nerve shattering, tremendously moving cinema" Empire
A disquieting documentary following the experiences of Michael Campbell, a white farmer who stood up to Robert Mugabe’s violent campaign of forced land reclamation. Refusing to back down in the face of intimidation, Campbell challenged Mugabe at the South African Development Community’s international court. Filmed covertly, this documentary provides a rare first-hand look at life under Mugabe’s dictatorship.
