Life Under Robert Mugabe: A Look Back at the Mugabe Era | Zimbabwe History Documentary

At the age of eight, filmmaker Robyn Paterson greeted Comrade Robert Mugabe with flowers as he stepped from a plane at a Zimbabwe air-force base. She and her best friend, Mercy, were poster children for the new Zimbabwe. Robyn as pale skinned as Mercy was dark, the girls were a symbol that all was well in the independent nation. But it was not. Only a few miles away, Mercy’s Matabele tribespeople were being massacred by Mugabe’s special forces.

A generation later, Robyn begins a high-risk ground search across Zimbabwe – desperate to know what has happened to her friend. Along the way she faces the dangers of filming in a country hostile to media, the shock of what is still going on behind closed doors, and the stark differences that she and Mercy have come to symbolize. A gripping, heart-wrenching, and very different look at the Mugabe era.
