Mugabe and the White African

Friday, August 7 - Thursday, August 13, 2009

Screening in DocuWeeks 2009. Michael Campbell is one of the few hundred white farmers still left in Zimbabwe since President Robert Mugabe began his land seizure program. Mike, like hundreds of farmers before him, has suffered years of multiple land invasions and violence at his farm. But now this grandfather, a tough, humorous 74-year-old fifthgeneration white African farmer, is alone in making a stand. He is taking Mugabe to an international court in Namibia in May for racism and violation of his civil rights. Mike and his son-in law Ben Freeth stand ready to protect their life’s work.
