THE NIGHTS STILL SMELL OF GUNPOWDER - INADELSO COSSA
DOCUMENTARY
France, Germany, Mozambique, Portugal, Norway, Netherlands
Feature | Color | HD

Concerned with the fragmented memories of my childhood during the civil war in Mozambique, I return to my grandmother's village to reveal the untold stories.

But my grandmother has Alzheimer's, and her memories are fading.
In the cold of the night, her silence breaks. In the same village lives a former rebel.
Perpetrator and victim, day and night, truth and fiction merge.
As my generation is facing new tensions, the ghosts of the war are tireless and wait in
the darkness.
