An ambitious dive into the chaos of war, based on the book by the journalist Ryszard Ricardo Kapuściński. Intercutting a graphically bold animation style with interviews and archival footage, the visually striking film conveys an immediacy as it tells of the outbreak of civil war following Angola's independence from Portugal in 1975. Kapuściński's animated trip through corpse-strewn roads conveys an undeniable urgency, while the documentary testimony reminds us that we are watching actual history.
