Guinea-Bissau: from memory to the future is a witness to the hopes and blockages that have been building the country for over four decades.
Filmed entirely in Guinea-Bissau in September 2018, when the 45th anniversary of independence was celebrated, the documentary records the testimonies of a number of scholars of several nationalities, members of Guinean civil society, artists and combatants of the national liberation struggle who reflect and debate on the memories and legacies of this past.
Guiné-Bissau: from memory to the future takes a long reflective journey on the imagination and construction of independent Guinea, also showing us how memory can serve the present generation as a tool for the construction of the future.
