Democrats | Camilla Nielsson | Zimbabwe | 2014 | 100 min

For more than three years, the Danish director Camilla Nielsson had an exceptional access to the power culture and the process of political conversion in Zimbabwe initiated by the ruling president Robert Mugabe. After 30 years with the nationalistic party ZANU, and the former liberator Robert Mugabe positioned as the autocratic president, finally the country has begun to establish a modern democracy with democratic funds. The last two elective victories favoring Mugabe was highly questionable and the last decade of political conflict has forced the country to begin the democratization process. The optimism and intentions are grand, however the political culture is marked by decades lacking democracy.
