Directed by Sarah Maldoror | 1972

With Domingos de Oliveira, Elisa Andrade, Jean M'Vondo

Sarah Maldoror—the first woman to make a feature film in Africa—chronicles Angola’s anti-colonialist struggle via the story of a woman’s relentless search for her resistance leader husband after he’s arrested and brutally imprisoned by the Portuguese authorities. Infused with the spirits of Marx and Frantz Fanon, Sambizanga is both a bracing dramatization of a pivotal moment in Angola’s fight for freedom and a rousing call to revolution.
