Make plans to join Indie Memphisย Wednesday, June 29 at Crosstown Theaterย forย SAMBIZANGAย -- a revolutionary bombshell from 1972 by one of Africaโ€™s first female directors!ย Sarah Maldororโ€™sย electrifying chronicle of Angolaโ€™s awakening independence movement is a stirring hymn to those who risked everything in the fight for freedom.

Based on a true story,ย SAMBIZANGAย follows young resistance leader Domingos Xavier (Domingos Oliveira) whose arrest by the Portuguese authorities helps ignite an anti-colonialist uprising and leads his determined wife Maria (Elisa Andrade) on an epic journey by foot to save him.

At the time of the film's completion, Maldoror's landmark of political cinema could not be shown publicly in Angola until after independence because of its moving content.ย SAMBIZANGAย stands apart for the way that it honors both the courage of and hardships endured by women in the global struggle for liberation.

"African women must be everywhere. They must be in the images, behind the camera, in the editing room & involved in every stage of the making of a film. They must be the ones to talk about their problems."ย โ€“โ€“ Director Sarah Maldoror (1929-2020)
