LUMUMBA: LA MORT DU PROPHETE explores the life and legacy of one of the legendary figures of modern African history. Like Malcolm X, Patrice Lumumba is remembered less for his lasting achievements than as an enduring symbol of the struggle for self-determination. This deeply personal reflection by acclaimed fimmaker Raoul Peck focuses on the events of Lumumba's brief twelve month rise and fall. It's a study of how Lumumba's legacy has been manipulated by politicians, the media and time itself. Through home movies, photographs, old newsreels, contemporary interviews with Belgian journalists and Lumumba's own daughter, Peck tries to piece together the tragic events and betrayals of 1960.
