Tutu Fellow Hopewell Chin’ono, is set to premiere a new documentary film entitled State of Mind in Harare in June 2018. The film by the award-winning Zimbabwean journalist and documentary filmmaker highlights an untold story of how Zimbabweans address mental illness in their communities.

State of Mind will launch in Harare with an introduction by Graca Machel.

The documentary is directed, written and produced by Hopewell Chin’ono, with the Sound track written, composed and produced by Oliver Mtukudzi.

Chin’ono has previously made documentaries looking at post-election violence, profiling the internationally acclaimed human rights lawyer Beatrice Mtetwa and the politics of farm invasions.
