In 2018, Zimbabwe held its first presidential elections since the overthrow of dictator Robert Mugabe, who ruled the country for 38 years. There are two candidates: Emmerson Mnangagwa — Mugabe's successor nicknamed "The Crocodile" — and the charismatic opposition leader Nelson Chamisa. The fiery speeches of the 40-year-old leader of the "Movement for Democratic Change" resonate with Zimbabweans. The ruling party is nervous: they are looking for ways to falsify the voting results. When the ballot stuffing happens on election night, it turns out that the real struggle is just beginning. The second part of Camilla Nielsson's "zimbabwe dilogy" (her previous film "Democrats" in 2015 won the Best Documentary Feature Award at the Tribeca Film Festival) combines political thriller, legal drama and reporting from the heart of street protests. "President" won a Special Jury Award in the World Cinema Documentary section of the 2021 Sundance Film Festival.
