  • The Hero is a film about the life of average Angolans after the Angolan Civil War. The film follows the lives of four individuals; Vitório, a war veteran crippled by a landmine who returns to Luanda, Manu, a young boy searching for his soldier father, Joana, a teacher who mentors the boy, and Judite, a prostitute who begins a romantic relationship with Vitório. Directed by Zézé Gamboa, The Hero won the 2005 Sundance World Dramatic Cinema Jury Grand Prize. It is a joint Angolan, Portuguese, French production, but was filmed entirely in Angola.
