Abstract:Shot in Guinea-Bissau, Cape Verde and Portugal, this documentary film examines the wars of independence in Guinea-Bissau and Cape Verde through the recollections of veterans and leaders on both sides of the conflict. Those countries lived through the conflict spanning from 1963 to 1974, a conflict between the PAIGC (African Party for the Independence of Guinea-Bissau and Cape Verde) and Portuguese troops. In 1995, Diana Andringa, the director of the film, visited the town of Geba as a reporter and there she found a stone half-destroyed in the name of the Portuguese soldiers killed on African soil. This was the starting point for this film, which informs about the beginnings of the PAIGC, the visionary leadership of Amilcar Cabral and examines a war which led to both independence in Guinea-Bissau and Cape Verde, and the overthrow of the dictatorship in Portugal.
