Behind the so-called “Cold” War, four adversaries with conflicting interests face off on the African continent: the Soviets want to expand their influence, the United States intend to appropriate the continent’s natural riches, the former European empires seek to revive their shaky colonial power, and the young African nations defend their newly-won independence. African revolutionaries like Patrice Lumumba, Amilcar Cabral and Agostinho Neto call on Cuban guerrillas to help them in their struggle. From Che Guevara’s tragicomic epic in the Congo up to the triumph of the “Battle of Cuito Cuanavale” in Angola, this film tells the story of Cuba’s central role in the revolutionary struggles on the African continent.nJihan El Thari is an Egyptian-born, French filmmaker, author and news correspondent. She has authored, directed and produced award-winning documentary films, authored books and reported on political conflicts in the Middle East and Africa. Jihan is a Member of the Executive Bureau of FEPACI (Federation of Pan-African Cinema) and Secretary General of The Guilde of African filmakers in the Diaspora.
