Sambizanga follows Maria as she walks from jail to jail in search of her incarcerated freedom-fighter husband, who is facing torture and execution by the Portuguese government for his role in the anti-colonial struggle. Based on a true story, and featuring a cast of nonprofessionals—many of whom were themselves involved in anticolonial resistance—this landmark work of political cinema honors the essential roles of women, as well as the hardships they endure, in the global struggle for liberation.
