    Brief synopsis

    Namibia: The Struggle for Liberation tells the story of Sam Nujoma, the first president of Namibia, who fought for his country's Independence from South Africa. Burnett uses a visionary cinematic language to present sixty years of African history through the eyes of an extraordinary man. This daring film is the first to be produced by the government of Namibia, a remarkable economic effort and and a gamble on African cinematography.
