Synopsis of the film, The Tunnel

The story, set in 1980s Zimbabwe during the 5th Brigade massacres, follows young Elizabeth as she uses her skills as a storyteller to save her village and solve the mystery of her father’s disappearance. It not only aims to raise awareness about the human rights abuses inflicted by Robert Mugabe at the time but, through the medium of cinema, provide a way to confront the suffering of the past so relevant to many African people.
