Summary

Made in the tradition of such true-life political thrillers as MALCOLM X and JFK, Raoul Peck’s award-winning epic dramatizes the rise and fall of legendary African leader Patrice Lumumba. When the Congo declared its independence from Belgium in 1960, the 36-year-old Lumumba became the first Prime Minister of the newly independent state but would last just months in office before being brutally assassinated.
