From refugees to top sommeliers. The documentary Blind Ambition tells the incredible story of four men who turned the international wine world upside down by becoming the first team from Zimbabwe to compete in the World Blind Wine Tasting Championships, the Olympic Games of the wine world.
After leaving their homeland for a better life elsewhere, they end up in South Africa after many wanderings. There they get jobs in restaurants and learn the intricacies of the wine trade. When they meet next, they are encouraged to enter France’s prestigious wine tasting competition.
The film follows their ambitious path to the competition where they must blind taste twelve different wines and guess the country, winery and vintage. An unlikely mission that will turn the international wine world upside down.
Winner of the Audience Award of the Tribeca Film Festival.
