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 organise the transportation of women’s sanitary aid into Zimbabwe. Frustrated by the complications; packing a million tampons, a camera and a romantic notion of being able to alter this reality, he decides to head off alone and undercover into Zimbabwe hell-bent on trying to document the unseen horrors.
Hoops 4 Hope has provided more than 10,000 school-age boys and girls in Zimbabwe and Southern Africa with high quality basketball and soccer programs for free, keeping them off the streets and providing tools to challenge HIV, gender equality, drugs and poverty. Why sports? Access to the enjoyment, self-esteem and other benefits of sports, should not be a dream or privilege. "Hoops 4 Hope has never been about creating great basketball players," explains Mark Crandall, one of the founders of H4H. "Although we are seeing clear results on that side of things, the program has always been about changing people's lives."
