Behind the Lines film screening and talk

Thursday 5 May 2011
Film: Behind the Lines (1971): Screening and Talk.

A classic film account of the struggle against Portuguese colonial rule in Mozambique and of life in the liberated zones, made with the support and cooperation of the Mozambican liberation movement, FRELIMO. At no small personal cost and not without challenges, land was cultivated for food production on a cooperative basis, health and primary education services provided, and new institutions of governance established. Rich in archive footage this film is an invaluable and enlightening reference of the end days of Portuguese defeat and decolonisation in Mozambique.
The film will be preceded by talks by the film’s director Margaret Dickinson and Dr Ros Gray of Goldsmiths University who will discuss the film’s importance.
Time: 7.00 p.m. Venue: Bishopsgate Institute, 230 Bishopsgate, London EC2 (opposite Liverpool Street Station). Admittance free. All welcome.
