  • The Hero is a film about the life of average Angolans after the Angolan Civil War. The film follows the lives of three individuals; Vitório, a war veteran crippled by a landmine who returns to Luanda, Manu, a young boy searching for his soldier father, and Joana, a teacher who mentors the boy and begins a love affair 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.
