Amandla!: A Revolution in Four-Part Harmony
Lee Hirsh, South Africa/USA, 2002, 103min.
Q&A with Director Lee Hirsh & Reception to follow with screening!
Amandla!: A Revolution in Four-Part Harmony depicts the extraordinary role of freedom songs in the very long struggle against apartheid in South Africa. Featuring Miriam Makeba, Hugh Masekela, Abdullah Ibrahim, Vusi Mahlasela and others, the film uses a mixture of interviews, musical performances and historical film footage. Amandla! allows South Africans’ stories to be told through the voices of the people themselves. Amandla! is a beautifully crafted film which gives a fresh perspective on the importance of resistance songs throughout a conflict. This celebratory film is a testimony to the power of song and reveals that the inspiration of music provides fuel for the soul.
