Logline: Four Zimbabwean men form their country’s first Wine Tasting Olympics team in this multi-award winning documentary shot in South Africa and France.
Winner of the Audience Award at Tribeca Film Festival, Sydney Film Festival and Sonoma International Film Festival, BLIND AMBITION is the inspiring story of four Zimbabwean refugees who conquered the odds to become South Africa’s top sommeliers. Driven by relentless optimism, a passion for their craft and unshakeable national pride, they form Zimbabwe’s first ever wine tasting team and set their sights on the coveted title of ‘World Wine Tasting Champions’. From the moment they arrive in France to compete, this team of mavericks turns an establishment of privilege and tradition on its head. A truly uplifting documentary that celebrates just how irrepressible the human spirit can be.
