A Memory in Three Acts


Mozambique gained independence from Portugal in 1975, following a brutal struggle that lasted more than a decade. A Memory In Three Acts explores the dramatic narrative of collective memory and post-colonial trauma, while political prisoners go on a journey in search of therapy to exorcise themselves from their colonial ghosts towards finding possible reconciliation with their past. As an essay on colonialism and silent violence, the film questions the value and duty of memory from the author’s point of view.
