Lumumba

World Regions students in Spring 2012 gathered to watch Lumumba, a movie made in 2000 that is in French. It centers around the true story of the independence of the Democratic Republic of Congo, which pre-revolution was headed by Prime Minister Patrice Lumumba (hence the title!).  However, the movie was filmed in Zimbabwe and Mozambique. The first President of the country, Joseph Kasa-Vubu is sworn in alongside, but there are still obstacles in creating a stable state, as the two try to prevent the country from descending into chaos. What will happen? Viewers found out, and you can too if you watch this movie, or read up on the history of the DRC!

(P.S.: Sorry about the small movie poster! It was the largest of the ones I could find!)
