Christmas 71

Natal 71

Directed by Margarida Cardoso
Portugal, 1999
Documentary, Short


Christmas 71 was the name of the record every soldier fighting overseas in the Portuguese Colonial Wars got every Xmas. It was a propaganda & patronising record to entice nationalism. To counter that, the soldiers swapped among them a cassete with a revolutionary songbook filled with protest songs.
