Lumumba

A Feature film by Raoul Peck

Produced by JBA Production

Release in France : 04/10/2000

    Synopsis

    Patrick Lumumba, the hero of Congolese independence, was not yet 30 when the first tremors of botched decolonization thrust him to the forefront of the international political arena. After a period of a few years, Lumumba became the most reviled man of the intense cold war period. Becoming Prime Minister of one of the richest countries in Africa, Lumumba’s destiny as tragic hero was charted, his assassination already programmed. He would remain in power only three months. All that remained for his assassins to do was dispose of his body.
