Part of the ongoing ANSWER Film Series – A Black History Month Event
Screening of Lumumba: Death of a Prophet with a report on the history of anti-colonial struggle in Africa.

The first feature documentary on one of the legendary figures of modern African history. Like Malcolm X, Patrice Lumumba is remembered less for his lasting achievements than as a shining symbol of the struggle for self-determination. This film is a moving meditation on the tragic events of Lumumba’s twelve month rise and fall as Zaire’s first and only popularly elected prime minister. It is not so much a conventional biography as a study of how Lumumba’s legacy has been distorted, even erased by politicians. 70m, 1992, French with English subtitles. $5 donation.
