English

Kula was a name of the PIDE brigade in the 1960s during Portuguese colonial rule in Mozambique, where political prisoners used to be interrogated, tortured and forced to reveal their connections with liberation movements. Today, 40 years later, those former political prisoners have decided to go back to the same place to face their fears and represent their memories in three acts as therapy for their post-torture trauma. The process of interrogation was a routine for political prisoners, in the dead of night transported from their disciplinary cell to the secret PIDE brigades in order to answer a series of interrogations. Under the pressure of torture some talked, while others’ silence cost them their lives.
