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.

Warwick Ross (Red Obsession, MIFF 2013) and Robert Coe’s paean to elevated vinous enjoyment – which premiered to adoring audiences at Tribeca 2021 – doubles as an emotionally rich testament to the strength of the human spirit in triumphing over adversity. With commentary provided by wine experts and the subjects’ family members, as well as stunning footage of picturesque European wine country, Blind Ambition is also a sumptuous cinematic treat that is sure to tingle the mind and the senses.
