MUGABE, ME AND A MILLION TAMPONS is a documentary gonzo odyssey into the darkness of a nation held in fear and torn apart by corruption. Beginning in South Africa, a disillusioned photojournalist is employed to document a charity trying to organize the transportation of women’s sanitary aid into Zimbabwe. Discovering people who risk their lives every day to defy Mugabe, he begins to question the media industry and his own ethical stance. The film offers a personal view into the world’s greater inability to stop this slow genocide.
