When Sunu Gonera was growing up in Zimbabwe, during the civil war, he used film as his escape. The Saturday screenings of Clint Eastwood westerns and Bruce Lee movies were his way to "disappear to somewhere else." He even remembers his first school play at his first multiracial school. "The lights are low, the hall is full, and it was a Mark Twain play, Huckleberry Finn," he says. "One character had a chain tied to his ankle and he was walking across the stage dragging this chain. He was this villain. It was so surreal for me."
