Film review: Wadjda

Every now and then, a film comes along that changes the world. Sometimes, you don't even realise it's doing it.

World War H – or hate’s not all that

What do Shyamalan, World War Z and Man of Steel have in common? Hype - and hate.

Director: Saki Mafundikwa

What is Shungu: The Resilience of a People, you say? It's not a new Jackie Chan film, let's get that straight.

Shungu documents the major political events that have occured in Zimbabwe in recent history; from the country's independence of Britain, to the coalition government formed between Robert Mugabe and Morgan Tsvangirai in 2009. It's an informative 54 minutes, and shows that perhaps Mugabe wasn't all bad in the beginning. But as poignant as it is, Saki Mafundikwa's documentary should have pushed things further, demonstrating more examples of the current state of affairs in Zimbabwe and the effect on people's lives.


Slightly daring. Shungu: The Resilience of a People is maybe an eye-opener for outsiders.
