Directed by exiled Zimbabwean filmmaker, Simon Bright, the film charts the Shakespearean rise and fall of one of Africa’s most enduring dictators. On February 21st President Mugabe turned 88.
As he celebrates 32 years of power, Zimbabwe fearfully prepares for elections and a new constitution. Amid rumours of his ailing health, and after the suspicious death of General Solomon Mujuru, a contender for succession, this definitive account of Mugabe’s life will screen at the Cube at 8pm, Monday 15th October 2012.
“No tyrant is without history, without formation. It is important to criticise and condemn within the remit of full knowledge, not simply to demonise. This is an important film because it gives Robert Mugabe dimension. Simon Bright has done us all sterling service.” Professor Stephen Chan.
