Mugabe and the White African
Time Out says
The film’s strength lies in its fearless reportage: the filmmakers are present at some extraordinary events, from the arrival of a minister’s son to confiscate the land (and his vitriolic speech about Europeans) to the family’s various and often futile trips to a regional court in Namibia to seek legal help against the proposed confiscation of their property. The sense of violence, real and threatened, is terrifying, although footage of the Campbells’ relatives living in comfort in rural Kent is a sobering reminder that white Africans with some wealth and European links, such as the Campbells, ultimately have more chance of an alternative way of life than the black Zimbabweans who work for them.
