Back by popular demand, Robert Mugabe…What Happened? will be screened at Bristol’s Cube cinema
Monday 15th October 2012, 8.00pm-9.25pm
Since its release last year, this sensational award-winning film has been sold out in cinemas across the UK, Northern Ireland, New York and South Africa…
Mugabe has called a general election in Zimbabwe for March 2013…What happened?…What will unfold? The intrigue continues!
As much excitement awaits Afrika Eye film festival’s return to Watershed in early November to celebrate ‘Jamaica at 50’ and ‘Healing in Africa’, Afrika Eye brings the celebrated film ROBERT MUGABE….WHAT HAPPENED? to the Cube for a screening at 8pm on Monday 15th October 2012.
Directed by exiled Zimbabwean filmmaker Simon Bright, ROBERT MUGABE…WHAT HAPPENED? charts the Shakespearean rise and fall of one of Africa’s most enduring dictators. On 21st February this year, President Mugabe turned 88. As he celebrates 32 years of power, Zimbabwe fearfully prepares for elections in March 2013 and a new constitution amid rumours of his ailing health, and after the suspicious death of General Solomon Mujuru, a contender for succession.
The distinguished academic Professor Stephen Chan, awarded an OBE for his services to Africa, says: “No tyrant is without history, without formation. It is important to criticise and condemn within the remit of full knowledge, not simply to demonise. This is an important film because it gives Robert Mugabe dimension. Simon Bright has done us all sterling service.”
ROBERT MUGABE…WHAT HAPPENED screens at The Cube, Monday 15th October 2012, 8.00pm-9.25pm. Tickets: £5/£4. For further information visit www.cubecinema.com
