“Zimbabwe – past the post … on a dark horse” – May 2011
This documentary cuts to the heart of Zimbabwe – peeling away the many layers & their respective differing realities – that make up the complex Zimbabwean society of today.
Offering new reference points the documentary journeys through the personal complexities that make up the psyche of President Robert Mugabe, the desperate situation of the refugee, the unrequited mission of the war veteran – who took up the armed struggle at the age of fifteen – and the tenacity of the predominantly white thoroughbred horse racing fraternity who are surviving in spite of invasion of their farms.
All this against a thumb-nail backdrop sketch of the history of Rhodesia / Zimbabwe & the legacy of British Colonialism.
This documentary is a personal perspective from independent filmmaker Kevin Harris.
