his family, in the face of immense political pressure and

intimidation.

The Prophet by Patrick Miller

Directed by Sandra Chidawnyika-Goliath

Davian, a young handsome and charismatic rock star

prophet on the rise, is in trouble. The suicide of his lover

has turned his world - nothing is what it seems anymore.

His position as Prophet lies in the balance as secrets,

deceptions and hidden enemies come out, threatening his

very survival.

Under the Rubble by Kudzai Sevenzo

Directed by Elizabeth Zaza Muchemwa

In a politically volatile Zimbabwe, Sarudzai Moyo has

learnt that the only way to survive is to keep her head

down. She plays her part dutifully, but as those close to

her fall victim to the increasing repression, she realises

that courage is not a choice; it is a duty.
