THE FIGHT FOR DEMOCRACY IN ZIMBABWE

Debate: What happens when the dream of democracy is within reach – but is suddenly and brutally taken away?

Never has the importance of democracy in our part of the world been more prominent than in 2021, when protesters stormed Capitol Hill. What does democracy mean for a country and its people? And what happens to the people when the dream of democracy is within reach – but is suddenly and brutally taken away from them? Meet the director Camilla Nielsson, who has worked for ten years in Zimbabwe, and the opposition leader Nelson Chamisa, who is the young and untested democrat who challenged the military regime and Mugabe’s successor. Moderated by CPH:DOX festival director Tine Fischer.
