Herds of buffalo and elephants roaming Quiçama Park? Bull fights in Luanda? Excursions by comfortable trains across Angola? And no traffic jams in Luanda?
The Angola Field Group presents “A Trip down Memory Lane”, at the Viking Club, Thursday Aug 21 at 8 pm.
We will show a film composed of footage shot in Angola mostly in the early 1970’s, probably for tourism, and edited some time later by somebody taking a nostalgic look at the country he left behind. This is not a documentary but the film gives some idea of what Angola was like during colonial times. The narration is in Portuguese and the sound track features Raúl Endipwo, a member of Duo Ouro Negro, a well known Angolan band in the 1970s.
Introduction and commentary by two Angolan members of our Field Group Team, Denis Sanche and Kelse Alexander.
