Linnette began her career in London as clapper loader/focus puller. In 1999, Frewin returned to Zimbabwe where he now works as a freelance in news and documentaries and with local NGO”s, reporting on human rights abuses and other issues. Covering Amnesty Secretary General Irene Khan’s visit to Zimbabwe in 2009, I was arrested with the WOZA women whilst filming their demonstration.

My work outside Zimbabwe includes “My Neighbour My Killer” a journey in search of coexistence in Rwanda and my most recent projects in Zimbabwe in 2009 include: “World Apart” for RTI Canada, filming undercover the plight of Zimbabweans trying to cross the border into South Africa. “Positive Ladies Soccer Club” for Medecins Sans Frontieres, the story of HIV positive women living in Epworth. “Zimbabwe’s Blood Diamonds” filming undercover the human rights abuses in the Marange diamond fields.
