Cosmas Magaya and Jaiaen Beck will use this window to see into daily Zimbabwean life. What does it look like to get up in the morning, gather wood, heat water, cook breakfast, bathe children, send the kids to school and tackle the rest of your day? How do you put food on the table with such a high unemployment rate? What is life like for the children during their day and after school? How does evening wind down? Where do you sleep? How does Shona culture hold these pieces, with music, spirituality and social fabric? Hear contrasting stories for a wide variety of families, and see pictures and film that share an array of experiences.
