Why should you join us? 

Africa in Motion wants to bring back to UK screens some of the greatest African films that have been neglected or forgotten, or that have simply been lost to the archives. Women in African cinema have long been ignored and this is an exciting opportunity to see some films of crucial importance in the development of African women’s cinema.

The film is set in Zimbabwe in the 1970s and is about the women fighters in the National Liberation Army who are fighting against white oppression. It focuses on two friends, Florence and Nyasha and their experiences during this war.
