No News from Harare (2013)
29min · Documentary, Short, Drama · 1 January 2013
A cutting edge account of Mugabe's Zimbabwe: political persecution in the guise of democracy, by Wendy Dent - guest-speaker on Zimbabwe at Harvard, Columbia, Stanford, UC Berkeley and USC. A timely study of the denial of civil rights, freedom of the media and freedom of expression, filmed undercover in Zimbabwe, now even more pertinent given the political violence surrounding Zimbabwe's 2013 elections. 'No News From Harare' delivers an uncensored account of the current political climate in Zimbabwe, as reported solely from those who have the courage to speak out. Featuring covertly filmed interviews with opposition leaders and human rights lawyers, and spiced with razor sharp political comedy which satirizes the unspeakable, No News From Harare presents a portrait of Zimbabwe which Mugabe would prefer remains unseen.
