In the line of fire: caught in Zimbabwe’s post-election violence

I was recently in Zimbabwe to cover the elections. I was there to make films away from the politicians and the hard news. It was fun, until the shooting started.

Here are a few short clips from my footage that day.

As I approached the front of the crowd I found a man who had been shot in the abdomen. I tried to treat him but I’m told that he later passed away. That was a hard lesson to keep calm and remember your training when faced with this sort of situation.

For the full story of what happened and what I learned from that day please feel free to listen to the podcast, either below or via iTunes.
