In 1994, 62 school children in Ruwa, Zimbabwe claimed to have seen a UFO and a black man on the school playground. No teachers or school employees witnessed the sighting. Fact or creative fabrication? Filmed in extreme close-ups director Roger Horn lets his imagination run wild as he combines archival interviews with visuals collected throughout Southern Africa and Europe.
Roger Horn lectures in Visual Anthropology at the University of Cape Town, drawing upon his 19 years of experience across various disciplines and media outlets for inspiration. Additionally, Roger is currently pursuing his PhD in Visual Anthropology where he continues to research and expand upon the material presented in his films on Zimbabwean women in Cape Town, "These Objects, Those Memories", "Migrant Dilemma", and "Research / Souvenir (Dialogues)".
