How I Got Here

"Zimbabwe - "She Has Arrived""


Combining the intimacy of familial history and the humour of grown up parent/child dynamics, How I Got Here is a powerfully entertaining and moving series where second gen children accompany their parents back to their country of origin, to relive the sacrifice, struggle and dramatic circumstances that led to their families coming to North America.

Episode Synopsis:
Fikile and her dad, Bangane, travel to his homeland in Zimbabwe for the first time. Bangane teaches Fikile the roots of their family and she gains a deeper appreciation for their Ndebele culture, and how it differs from her North American upbringing.
