Kanimambo

Abdelatif Hwidar, Carla Subirana, Adán Aliaga

Documentary-Fiction, Spain, 2012, 94’
Subtitles: Portuguese and English; M/12

Three direc­tors, three trips and three views. The film­ma­kers ven­ture up in an unk­nown coun­try in search of ins­pi­ring cha­rac­ters. All the sto­ries have com­ple­tely dif­fe­rent base-arguments, but are intertwi­ned by a com­mon ele­ment, almost imper­cep­ti­ble, but fundamental.

Kani­mambo, which means thank you in Shan­gana, local lan­guage, tells, in the first per­son, three sto­ries about the dif­fe­rent expe­ri­en­ces that the film­ma­kers had in Mozam­bi­que, a coun­try mar­ked by the civil war stigma, seque­lae of Por­tu­guese colo­ni­a­lism, poverty and dise­ase where men and women are every­day heroes with a sin­gle objec­tive: to fight for a bet­ter life.
