Because You d Lumumba
Biography Drama 20001h 55m

The true story of the rise to power and brutal assassination of the formerly vilified and later redeemed leader of the independent Congo, Patrice Lumumba. Using newly discovered historical evidence, Haitian-born and later Congo-raised writer and director Raoul Peck renders an emotional and tautly woven account of the mail clerk and beer salesman with a flair for oratory and an uncompromising belief in the capacity of his homeland to build a prosperous nation independent of its former Belgian overlords. Lumumba emerges here as the heroic sacrificial lamb dubiously portrayed by the international media and led to slaughter by commercial and political interests in Belgium, the United States, the international community, and Lumumba's own administration; a true story of political intrigue and murder where political entities, captains of commerce, and the military dovetail in their quest for economic and political hegemony.Lumumba featuring Ériq Ebouaney and Alex Descas is streaming with subscription on Fandor, streaming with subscription on Kanopy, and available for rent or purchase on iTunes. It's a biography and drama movie with a better than average IMDb audience rating of 7.2 (1,949 votes).
