Documentary trailer: "Robert Mugabe... what happened?"

update (07 Aug 2012): "Robert Mugabe... what happened?" is now available to buy on DVD from Amazon (UK)!

The documentary "Robert Mugabe… what happened?", directed by Simon Bright and
produced by Michael Auret, had its World Premiere at the Opening Night film of the Encounters South African International Documentary Festival in Cape Town on Thursday 09 June 2011.

Billed as the definitive account of Mugabe’s life, the film dramatically illustrates his successful liberation and development of the country but also his ruthless and cunning retention of power at all costs.
The director of the film, Simon Bright, explains that the film "gives Mugabe the credit where its due. It’s an exploration of what happened to a promising African leader who was well respected and it recognises his fight for freedom and against Apartheid" yet also "explores the forces that caused him to effectively destroy a lot of what he built."
