In the wake of long-time leader Robert Mugabe’s contentious 2008 presidential win, Zimbabwe took a historic step forward by convening a bipartisan constitutional committee in an effort to transition the country away from its corrupt, authoritarian leadership. Filmed over the course of three years with unprecedented access to the two political rivals overseeing the committee, this riveting, first-hand account of a country’s challenging first steps towards democracy plays at once like an intimate political thriller and unlikely buddy film. Directed by Camilla Nielsson and winner of the Best Documentary Feature Award at the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival, Democrats premieres on Independent Lens Monday, April 18, at 9 p.m. on OETA-HD.
