Mugabe and the White African (Trailer)

Movies

A 75 year old Euro-Zimbabwean man risks his life to sue the President.

Mike Campbell is one of the few euro-zimbabwean farmers that still calls Zimbabwe his home after years of violent land seizures by President Mugabe. In 2008, he challenged President Robert Mugabe before the South African Development Community International Court (SADC) to keep his farm, which is also home to 500 black workers and their families, and to charge Mugabe and his government with racial discrimination and Human Rights violations. This film won the 2010  BAFTA for the Best Film Debut and was on the short list for the 2010 Academy Awards (Oscars).
