Breakfast with Mugabe

Scenic Design

We are invited to eavesdrop on the volcanic conversations between Robert Mugabe, controversial president of Zimbabwe, and his psychiatrist as he seeks help. He is being haunted by a vengeful spirit, the ghost of a former revolutionary comrade turned potential rival. In this suspenseful historical thriller we explore whether or not Mugabe is a monster or a victim, freedom fighter or dictator. Breakfast With Mugabe is a taut meditation on guilt and power - a look into one man's sick conscience.
