Kimpa Vita: The Mother of the African Revolution


Bernie Grant Arts Centre, Town Hall Approach Road Tottenham Green London, N15 4RX

At a time of strife and civil war in the Kingdom of Kongo, a young woman leads a mass movement calling for unity and an end to Portuguese dominance. Ne Kunda Nlaba’s biopic documentary explores her legacy, revealing how powerful African kingdoms were invaded by the West and suffered slavery and exploitation. In the early 1700s, a fearless young woman decides to fight for her country and while she tragically meets her demise, she will always be remembered as Kimpa Vita: The Mother of the African Revolution.
