This publication was released as part of the Labor exhibition series at Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin.
The focal point of Filipa César’s research is the influence of Amílcar Cabral on the cinematic culture of Guinea Bissau. For Cabral, who was assassinated in 1973, cinema played a key role in the 1961 to 1973 struggle for independence from Portuguese colonial rule.
The publication combines a loose-leaf cover and two separate booklets. One is printed on Chromolux paper that displays selected video stills on the glossy side of the paper. Once opened, the glossy sheet shows the stills chronologically. A separate interview supplement printed on thin, semi-transparent paper is included in the centrefold.
