An intimate, feminist and political odyssey.

Guinea-Bissau, 1969. A violent war between the Portuguese colonial army and the guerrillas of the African Party for the Independence of Guinea and Cape Verde. Nome leaves his village
and joins the maquis. After years, he will return as a hero, but joy will soon give way to bitterness and cynicism.

With its dreamlike photography, Nome follows the intimate trajectory of two characters who love each other, are separated by life and become diametrically opposed beings, built against the brutality of what is rocking their country. A great upheaval.

Sana Na N’Hada

Sana Na N’Hada was born in Guinea-Bissau in 1950. Sent to Cuba by revolutionary leader Amilcar Cabral with four other apprentice filmmakers, he studied at the Cuban Institute of Cinematographic Arts and Industries. On his return to Guinea, he filmed the war of independence. His cinema would subsequently take shape as he moved back and forth between the memory of the Portuguese occupation, the struggle for independence and a meditation on the destruction of traditional societies in Guinea-Bissau.
