Film: ‘Lovers in Time’, or how we didn’t get arrested in Harare
The film which is an experimental film essay is a collaboration between Agnieszka Piotrowska, acclaimed UK Director/Producer/writer and a Reader at University of Bedfordshire and Joe Njagu, a premiere Zimbabwean filmmaker who has shot, edited and co-produced the film. . The production included some of the best performing and musical talent in Zimbabwe. The film had its world premiere at Zimbabwe International Film Festival in October 2015.

Book: Black and White: Cinema, Politics and the Arts in Zimbabwe
In Black and White Agnieszka Piotrowska presents a unique insight into the contemporary arts scene in Zimbabwe – an area that has received very limited coverage in research and the media. The book combines theory with literature, film, politics and culture and takes a psychosocial and psychoanalytic perspective to achieve a truly interdisciplinary analysis.
