This is a Call is a short spoken word visual calling young and old Zimbabweans to unite together and build a better future. It challenges the view of past and present Zimbabwe with descriptive vocabulary and emotively conducive visuals of Harare.
The idea stems from the years of hardship and silence that perhaps Zimbabweans have been privy to. It seeks to create through a different means other than forefront political nature. Media has power, words have more power and therefore this was a unique of creating and persuading people to join the train of change.
