A film created from archive footage of African Liberation movements (including images of Angola, Mozambique, Guinea-Bissau), based on The Wretched of the Earth by Frantz Fanon, and featuring incredible narration by Lauryn Hill. A critique of the mechanisms of decolonialization and about how timely the discussion concerning them still is. A film that makes us reflect on our own current national history and on Portugal’s role in the struggle for liberation from colonial rule.
