Abstract:

"Seventy-one year old Morris Fynn, great grandson of a British adventurer and a Zulu princess, has been on a mission for the last 35 years. It's a mission that has seen him take on presidents and governments, legal systems and his own community. It's a mission that fires him up every time he talks about it. Morris Fynn's mission in life is to be recognized and respected as a Zulu chief. The only thing standing in his way is that Morris Fynn is 'Coloured', and there are no 'Coloured' chiefs in the old, or the new South Africa. In Roger and Me style, this hour long-documentary traces the fascinating quest of the British descendant Morris Fynn, to be recognized as a Zulu Chief"--Container.
