NAMIBIA: THE STRUGGLE FOR LIBERATION
Seattle Premiere - Critically acclaimed director Charles Burnetts latest film follows the legend of Samuel Nujoma (Carl Lumbly), Namibias first president and a prominent leader in the struggle for independence from apartheid South Africa. The film opens when Nujoma is 16 years old, the country is under constant oppression from South Africa, and the young man learns that he is the direct descendant of royalty. He sets out to live with an aunt, and befriends a religious man (Danny Glover) who has maintained a low profile after legal troubles stemming from a staged car accident. Eventually Nujoma, in the face of severe racism, forms the SWAPO political movement that, with the assistance of some foreign governments, eventually earns Namibia its independence. Later on, a boycott and massacre of protestors turn up the heat, forcing Nujoma into exile. This film is 160 minutes long (3 hours) and includes one intermission.
