Event Originally produced by Zeitgeist Films in 2001.
Summary From the director of I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO. Made in the tradition of such true-life political thrillers as Malcolm X and JFK, Raoul Peck’s award-winning LUMUMBA is a gripping epic that dramatizes for the first time the rise and fall of legendary African leader Patrice Lumumba. When the Congo declared its independence from Belgium in 1960, Lumumba became the first Prime Minister of the newly independent state. Called "the politico of the bush" by journalists of the day, he became a lightning rod of Cold War politics as his vision of a united Africa gained him powerful enemies in Belgium and the U.S. Nominated for the CICAE Art CInema Award at the **Cannes Film Festival.** Nominated for Best Foreign Film at the **Film Independent Spirit Awards.** *"Peck, who assayed Lumumba's life in a 1991 documentary, now paces the doomed man's story like the genuine thriller that it is." - Ella Taylor, **L.A. Weekly***
