AFRICAN LEADERS


Sat, Feb. 28 @ 1PM  

Thomas Sankara

TSankaraCaptain Thomas Sankara was the leader of the Burkinabe Revolution. In the former Upper Volta known today as Burkina Faso, a group of men decided to launch a revolution that would enable the country "to accept the responsibility of its reality and its destiny with human dignity". Thomas Sankara belongs to the group of African leaders who wanted to give the continent in general and their countries in particular a new socio-political dimension.  Directed by Balufu Bakupa Kanyinda, 1991, 26 min, RDC, Biography, French with English subt.



Amilcar Cabral

AmilcarCabralAmilcar Cabral was the 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). He was born in Guinea in 1924 and assassinated in Conakry in 1973. Regarded as a true icon of African history, this documentary provides considerable background to this revolutionary giant and reveals Cabral in several dimensions: as a man, a father, politician, humanist and poet.

The documentary is skillfully produced and uses a wealth of rare archive footage, balanced inclusion of varied testimonies of important African personalities and the credible recreation of notable episodes of Cabral's life. Directed by Ana Ramos Lisboa, 2001, 52 min, Cape Verde/Portugal, Biography, French with English subt.
