A classic account of FRELIMO's struggle against Portuguese colonial rule in Mozambique and of life in FRELIMO's liberated zones. Made at the time with the support and cooperation of the Mozambican liberation movement, FRELIMO, this is a classic account of the millitary struggles of FRELIMO. At no small personal cost and not without challenges, land was cultivated for food production on a cooperative basis, health and primary education services provided, and new institutions of governance established. Rich in archive footage this film is an invaluable and enlightening reference of the end days of Portuguese defeat and decolonisation in Mozambique.
