THE LAND INVASIONS
Zimbabwe - 2000
Covering the Land Invasions of 2000 in Zimbabwe when the ZANU Government seized the white-owned farms, oft-time violent, with no renumeration. Displacing the farms and tens of thousands of workers. The farms were looted of equipment, their crops and the vast majority lay idle 20+ years later.
From the "breadbasket of Africa" to "basket case" overnight.
However, it should not have come as a surprise. The leaders of ZANU had this plan all along and in this production we show films of them made before independence stating their aims.
Includes interview with Robert Mugabe, Edson Zvobgo, Edgar Tekere and more.
Also included is the documentary "My Land My Life" covering the events from a different perspective.
Available in PAL or NTSC, all regions. DVD only.
