Island of the Spirits (A Ilha dos Espiritos) (2010, 63 min), by Licinio Azevedo – tells the eventful history of the “Island of Mozambique.”A small island, a great history. View trailer.

"Long before giving its name to the country, the Island of Mozambique had a fundamental role in the Indian Ocean over the centuries. Anchor point for caravels, meeting point for pirates, it is a melting pot of races. It raises its walls in the middle of the sea. Its winding streets, full of life reveal small palaces, churches and white houses. Its inhabitants are eccentric characters, proud of the island’s past history. As we wander through the streets we meet an historian, a maritime archeologist, a fisherman, the “doorman” of the island, a dancer, and many spirits…"

After the screening, there will be a discussion led by Harriet McGuire, a former Public Affairs Officer with the U.S. Embassy in Maputo, Mozambique. She’ll discuss some of the ongoing projects for the Ilha de Mocambique – including a marine archaeology project.

BloomScreen Indie Film Night – is a weekly series of independent and foreign films, accompanied by discussions with filmmakers and other experts. Our goal is to provide a unique experience that a local Cineplex cannot – an opportunity for discussion that allows a better understanding of issues affecting our communities and our world. If you are interested in helping out in any way, they are also looking for volunteers to help out, email if you are interested in supporting BloomScreen.
