    • Synopsis
    • Mozambique colonial history left a big wound in today country’s collective memory. A Memory In Three Acts it’s a poetic search on post-colonial trauma and collective memory loss where voiceless people who had resist in the underground where remain silent to tell their story.
      Former political prisoners who decide to go back to the places where they used to be tortured, to meet their ghosts, rebuild their memories of torture and find a possible reconciliation as a treatment for their trauma. As an essay on colonialism and violence the film inquires about the duty of memory in the authors point of view.
