A screening of The Hero presented by Sembène–The Film & Art Festival. (This film will be presented in Portuguese with English subtitles.) Best Foreign Feature winner of ther 2005 Sundance Film Festival, THE HERO (O HEROI) is the story of Angola, a nation torn apart by forty years of uninterrupted war, and now trying imperfectly but courageously to piece itself back together. It is also the story of a city, Luanda, like so many in the Third World, trying to absorb the millions of people displaced by civil strife and global economic change.
