Synopsis:
Michael Campbell is one of a handful of white farmers still left in Zimbabwe since President Robert Mugabe began enforcing his controversial land seizure program, an initiative intended to reclaim white-owned land and redistribute it to poor black Zimbabweans. Since 2000, formerly thriving farms that employed thousands, now sit derelict while poverty and hunger are rife amongst the majority of the country's citizens; but 74-year-old Mike refuses to back down.
Set against the backdrop of the tumultuous 2008 presidential election, 'Mugabe and the White African' follows Mike and son-in-law Ben Freeth's harrowing attempt to take Mugabe to an international court for racism and violation of their human rights. It is an unprecedented case, upon which rests not only Mike and his family's future, but also the future of millions of ordinary Zimbabweans who continue to suffer at the hands of one of the world's most infamous tyrants.

Startling - Mugabe and the White African review by NG

Spoiler Alert
27/02/2012

This was recommended to me by my friend who is an aid worker in Zimbabwe. It is a documentary style film vividly portraying the evils of the country under Mugabe and his cronies and the strength of those who are willing to hold on to what they believe is right. Captivating and essential viewing for anyone interested in the current situation in Zimbabwe
