Amílcar Cabral (2001, 60 min), by Ana Ramos Lisboa – recalls the life of Amilcar Cabral, leader of the Liberation Movement of Cape Verde and Guinea Bissau and the founder of the African Party for the Independence of Guinea Bissau and Cape Verde (PAIGC). Cabral, born in Guinea in 1924 and assassinated in Conakry in 1973 is one of Africa’s great heroes. Using rare footage, the film shows the various aspects of Amílcar Cabral’s life: as a man, as a father, as a politician, as a humanist and as a poet. (In Portuguese with English subtitles).
Our screening will be followed by a Q&A discussion hosted by Mwiza Munthali.
