Blind Ambition 

Australia, 2021. Directed by Robert Coe, Warwick Ross. 94 min. PG

When God closes a door, he opens a bottle

Winner of the Audience Award at Tribeca Film Festival and Sydney Film Festival, BLIND AMBITION is the inspiring story of  four Zimbabwean refugees who conquered the odds to become South Africa’s top sommeliers. Driven by relentless optimism, a passion for their craft and unshakeable national pride, they form Zimbabwe’s first ever wine tasting team and set their sights on the coveted title of ‘World Wine Tasting Champions’. From the moment they arrive in France to compete, this team of mavericks turns an establishment of privilege and tradition on its head. A truly uplifting documentary that celebrates just how irrepressible the human spirit can be.

“Blind Ambition educates the viewer about wine tasting in a way that is simultaneously entertaining and eye-opening, linking it to the men’s own stories to provide a different perspective on wine and the culture around it.” – Universal Cinema
