  • HEDONIST's rating of the film Mugabe and the White African

    Amazingly powerful material -- just finished the film and I feel so much hatred... so much sadness. It is a disturbing reminder that the comforts of justice that I have somewhat come to expect in America are not upheld in many other countries. The worst part is they continue on without any regard for their public image and internationally we do nothing about it.

  • mpho3's rating of the film Mugabe and the White African

    Mugabe's heralding of Hitler is beyond disturbing. The international community looks askance because Zim doesn't have anything we want. If it were an oil rich nation, I'm sure Mugabe would be history. As it is, what incredible strength, fortitude and courage shown by Campbell, Freeth, their families, their workers, and the filmmakers too. All of it is such a heartbreaking story. Oh, Zimbabwe. I pray for you.
