Post-Colonial Histories : Trauma, Memory and Reconciliation in the Context of the Angolan Civil War
About this item
The Swedish documentary My Heart of Darkness (2011) tells the story of a South African paratrooper returning to Angola. Facing former enemies, he tries to regain mental health and find reconciliation. The film is the stepping-stone for the contributors to this volume. They examine different facets like memory discourse, genre aspects, the use of music, and authentication processes. Other essays discuss additional cinematic representations of the Angolan Civil War, as well as its historical context and its aftermath in the cultural sphere.
