Robert Mugabe, what happened?
Afrika Filmfestival 2012
BELGISCHE PREMIÈRE
Documentary
Director: Simon Bright
Country: Verenigd Koninkrijk, Frankrijk, Zuid-Afrika
Year: 2011
Length: 1u24
Dialogues: English
Subtitles: *None*

SYNOPSIS
In parallel narratives Simon Bright tells the stories of Rhodesia’s transition to Zimbabwe and the personal journey of Robert Mugabe, using one to explain the other, finally suggesting why Mugabe chose the road he has. As a biography it has everything – first-hand accounts of Mugabe’s early life with a desperately poor Catholic mother, what he was like at school, the effects of a Jesuit education and his rage against his absent father. As his star ascends commentators reflect on early landmarks, particularly his attendance of Ghana’s independence celebrations in 1957. It’s clear the highly intellectual Young Turk was admired and respected through the 1960s and 70s, Bright tracing the origins of the esteem through fascinating archival film interviews. The parallel story of the transition is equally well researched, as are later episodes of importance, notably Lancaster House, the Matabeleland genocide and the growing role of global business in Africa’s economies. But it’s the behind-the-scenes jostling for power which Bright exposes that is the most riveting, and from it Mugabe emerges as unquestionably one of history’s most canny, devious leaders. It is a haunting film, the music an achievement in itself, a mix of liberation, folk and contemporary sounds.
