At the age of eight, Robyn Paterson and her best friend, Mercy, greeted Comrade Robert Mugabe with flowers as he stepped from a plane at a Zimbabwe air-force base. Robyn as pale-skinned as Mercy was dark, the girls were a symbol that all was well in the nation. But only a few miles away, Mercy’s Matabele tribespeople were being massacred by Mugabe’s special forces. In her documentary Finding Mercy, Robyn returns to Zimbabwe years later to search for her long-lost friend. Gripping, heart-wrenching and intensely personal, the film gives a very different look at the Mugabe era, and reveals the the stark differences that Robyn and Mercy have come to symbolize.
