April Captains

A Feature film by Maria De Medeiros

Produced by JBA Production

Release in France : 24/01/2001

    Synopsis

    In Portugal, late in the night of April 24 to 25, 1974, the radio broadcast an outlawed song: "Grândola". It could have just been an act of insubordination by a rebellious journalist. It was in fact the preplanned signal triggering the military coup which was to change the face of this country and the destiny of vast territories in Africa.
