Transmission from the Liberated Zones

In Transmission from the Liberated Zones by the artist and filmmaker Filipa César, we follow the Swedish presence in the liberation movement in Guinea-Bissau (1963-1974). In the film we meet four people who at various times lived in the tropical jungle where the guerrilla war going on: the Social Democratic politician Birgitta Dahl, UN envoy Folke Löfgren and the documentary filmmakers Lennart Malmer and Ingela Romare.

Filipa César has since 2008 worked with the Portuguese colonial history and the liberation movement in Guinea-Bissau. Her work renegotiates the history of writing mechanisms by combining conventional and subjective perspective of the film’s poetic potential.
