The Prince of Malabo, directed by (former Namibia based journalist) Tawanda Kanhema, 27 min, 2014, explores Equatorial Guinea's economic rise and the challenges it faces.
The country's vice president, Teodoro Nguema Obiang, spent US$300 million on mansions, a jet and luxury cars and faces money laundering charges in France and two asset forfeiture cases in the United States. Obiang's father, President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, is the world's longest serving head of state, in power since a 1979 coup d'etat.
