Mozambican filmmaker Inadelso Cossa’s work reaches different phases of Africa’s, particularly Mozambique’s, history from a personal perspective. Exploring the Colonial, Post Colonial, Independence, and Post Civil War periods, Cossa finds it his duty to document what he refers to as ‘acts of memory.’

More information on his film Uma Memória em Três Atos (A Memory in Three Acts) and other projects.

This lecture is a collaboration with Graham M. Jones and the MIT Anthropology Program, with support from the MIT History Program, and MISTI-Africa.
