Country:  Angola
Genre:  Documentary

Description:
  [Screening @ Tiburon Film Society]

After 30 years of civil war, Angola has one goal: to rebuild itself and occupy a central place in the world. Scattered across several countries, graduates Angolans are encouraged to return home where their country is being reinvented from different influences: the struggle of those who cling to the past and the modernity of this diaspora that has assimilated other models of society. Lisa, Pedro Antonio, Octavio De Miguel and Luaty, all came back with new concepts mainly acquired from the West.


Director's statement:

"Angola Ano Zero tries to explain, both for Angolans and Cubans that the Angolan problem is the problem of all the ex-colonies, Culture Shock, the inquiry about the meaning of identity. An example, was when Che Guevara wrote in his diary during the Congo campaign, how he could not understand why the Congolese fought on both sides. We Latin Americans donít understand this concept in the same way as Europeans, Asians or Africans, so we limit ourselves to shutting out the unknown. Angola is the living example that this is impossible in the era of globalisation."
