Angola, saudades de quem te ama

Richard Pakleppa

Documentary, Angola and South Africa, 2005, 60’
Subtitles: Portuguese and English; M/12

Richard Pakleppa takes his camera onto the stre­ets of Angola and gather sto­ries of all sec­tors of soci­ety, dis­co­ve­ring how the coun­try has evol­ved since the end of the civil war.

A group of street chil­dren, a tea­cher, a pri­est, a fish­mon­ger, a model and a rap­per talk about the war and the chan­ges that resul­ted from it. These are dra­ma­tic sto­ries of post-war, in a coun­try which, while strug­gling to res­tart it faces new problems.

The direc­tor addres­ses seve­ral issues that are part of this soci­ety, as the case law, oil, land­mi­nes, poverty and micro­cre­dit. A kalei­dos­co­pic view of Ango­lan soci­ety that reve­als social ine­qua­li­ties in a coun­try that lived in war for years.
