'Zamora' is much more than a swahili love story....it is an evolution of one man's hidden desires, and his quest to find true love.
Filmed against a backdrop of mystical and mythological world of Zanzibar, the story revolves around Zamora, a vain artist/womaniser on a voyage of self discovery. Filled with romantic connotations about the spice island, he meets a beautiful Omani woman who mesmerises and inspires him to buy a dhow to have a comfortable life in 'Paradise'. Zamora's passion for the unknown, a reckless adventurous lifestyle and a sordid past lands him in nightmarish situations. Through three separate emotionally charged relationships, (Zulfa, Saada and Zareena) he almost becomes a victim of the confrontation between the good and the evil. Zulfa stands for innocent love spiced with traditional restrictions. Saada stands for the mystical, magical and unconditioned side to the African psychy. Zareena stands for power and obsession and its negative impact. The film explores the adoptive nature of the African spirit with all its consequent pro's and con's.
The film boasts a star studded Tanzanian cast....... Richard Bezuidenhout (Big Brother Africa winner), Richa Adhia (Miss Tanzania 2007), Renalda Arbogast (A leading contemporary dancer) and Habiba Mwinyi ( A talented upcoming Zanzibari actress).
With an original music score by well known Zanzibari musical icons ... Matona Mohamed, Mahfudh Ali Mahfudh, Rajab Suleman and Bi Kidude, Zamora is a showcase of the best creative talent that Tanzania has to offer.
