Synopsis

Following the 1885 Berlin Conference resolution on the partition of Africa, the Portuguese army uses a talented ensign to register the effective occupation of the territory conquered in 1907 to the Cuamato people, in the south of Angola. “A Story from Africa” enlivens this rarely seen photographic archive through the tragic tale of Calipalula, the Cuamato nobleman essential to the unfolding of events in this Portuguese pacification campaign.

Sinopsis

Nakon rezolucije Berlinske konferencije iz 1885. godine o podjeli Afrike, portugalska vojska će iskoristiti talentiranog zastavnika kako bi trenutnu okupaciju teritorija osvojenog 1907. godine pripisala narodu Cuamato, na jugu Angole. “Priča iz Afrike” oživljava ovaj rijetko viđeni fotografski arhiv kroz tragičnu priču Calipalule, Cuamato plemića koji je imao ključnu ulogu u razvoju događaja u ovoj portugalskoj kampanji pomirenja.
