Indian Film Maker Makes Waves Internationally with his Film on President Mugabe


A path-breaking film by a young Indian filmmaker on President Robert Mugabe has been featured as one of the Hot Picks of 2011 at Cannes (France), in the Factual Entertainment Section. Titled ‘Mugabe’s Zimbabwe’, the film has been signed up for worldwide commercial distribution by TVF International.


The 54’ minute documentary was shot on location in Zimbabwe, England, Scotland and India. Made in English, the motion picture will now be adapted in various languages across the world and be featured on multiple media platforms.

Commenting on the film, the Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Barry Baerak said
"the film is "a primer to the situation, something of value especially to those not yet familiar with Zimbabwe and its recent history".

Mugabe’s Zimbabwe’ is a thoroughly researched film, with unprecedented access to Zimbabwe’s Deputy Prime Minister, Vice Presidents, Governor of Reserve Bank, Former Arch Bishop of Bulawayo and UK’s Former Secretary of State for International Development etc. Parts of the documentary were shot undercover and the crew included people from nine different nationalities.

Commenting on taking up the film for world wide distribution, Leila Monks Director, TVF International said that "TVF International are really pleased to be working with Dolsun Media distributing their film "Mugabe's Zimbabwe". As dictatorialism pervades the news, the world watches democracy fight against its enemies so this film featuring exclusive interviews and the inside track on the current situation in Zimbabwe has never been more topical."
