Un film de Craig Mathew & Ronelle Loots


Set in Angola, Narrative of Betrayal explores issues of national identity in a country crippled by internal conflict. Members of the’Angolan Group for Reflection on Peace’ meet, on a rooftop in Luanda, to discuss the predicament of their country. What is freedom of thought? Are Angolans still perpetuating colonial will? What went wrong in the transition from socialism to democracy? How is the Angolan identity influenced by European values and the concept of an African Renaissance? What is the vision for the future? The contemplative words of these free-thinkers give shape and meaning to the images of war-torn Angola.

The film examines a society of concentrated pockets of oil and diamond wealth amidst a sea of poverty and corruption.
