Pan-African Film Series
Join us for a virtual edition of our monthly #PanAfricanFilmSeries! The second Saturday of every month at 2 PM MT streamed live from our Facebook page – for the duration of the stay at home order.
This month we’ll be screening Sambizanga. Sambizanga is a 1972 film by director Sarah Maldoror. Set in 1961 at the onset of the Angolan War of Independence, it follows the struggles of Angolan militants involved with the Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA), an anti-colonial political movement of which Maldoror’s husband, Mário Coelho Pinto de Andrade, was a leader. The film is based on the novella A vida verdadeira de Domingos Xavier (“The Real Life of Domingos Xavier”) by Angolan writer José Luandino Vieira
