Lumumba

In June of 1960, a young, self-taught nationalist named Patrice Lumumba became the first elected prime minister of the Congo, shortly after the country won its independence from Belgium. Within two months, Lumumba was villified in the West as a communist and assassinated with the collusion of the United States and Belgium. Part history lesson, part political thriller, this eye-opening biopic eloquently displays how political turmoil never exists in a bubble, but runs across national borders. Everyone from the USA to the USSR is soon tangled up in this empassioned Oliver Stone-style conspiracy. in French with English subtitles. 115 minutes
