Democrats is a documentary film about two politicians, from opposing political parties, who are appointed to write a new constitution for Zimbabwe. The men tour rural areas and urban neighborhoods in Zimbabwe to collect input from citizens and to educate and encourage Zimbabweans to exercise their new democratic rights. This screening may complement a Social Studies, African Studies or World History curriculum. Taught in conjunction with this guide, the film will invite students to witness political struggle in a young democracy and to think critically about citizenship, freedom and the democratic process worldwide.
