    After the posting from Guinea-Bissau's INEP (national research archive).
    California Newsreel has just acquired for distribution in North America, the
    first feature film from Guinea-Bissau, entitled MORTU NEGA. Completed in
    1988, MORTU NEGA by Flora Gomes was the first dramatic film to examine the
    country's war of independence from the Portuguese, life in the liberated
    areas, and the immediate results of independence for the country's populace.
    Given recent events in Guinea-Bissau, the availability of MORTU NEGA perhaps
    takes on greater significance.
