Zimbabwe's Forgotten Children - Update

Comic Relief presents an updated version of 2010's astonishing film, Zimbabwe's Forgotten Children. The original told a powerful tale of the gaping chasm between what the children of Zimbabwe hope for and what their country can provide. One year on, this update comprises a shortened version of the documentary, and a chance to catch up with the children and see how their lives have changed since the film was first shown.

Beautifully shot, this moving film is full of harrowing moments, not least the emptying of a school, class by class, as pupils who haven't paid their school fees are sent home.
