Baba Chipo

Notes about the recording

The film script is based on a drama story in Shona published in book form by Christian Audio-Visual Action (CAVA) in 1997. Copyright holder: Christian Audio-Visual Action (CAVA), Harare, Zimbabwe. Producer: MEMA-Media. Distributed by GRN with permission. The narrator walks with the funeral procession of Baba Chipo. He tells the story of Baba Chipo and the choices he had to make. A conflicting situation between Baba Chipo and his wife, Amai Chipo, shows his bombasm, arrogance and recklessness. The pastor comes to visit Baba Chipo who complains that he is wasting his time. The dramatic end of the story leaves the viewer with a very important choice to make. Distributed by GRN with the permission of CAVA.
