The Train From Canhoca

Comboio de Canhoca

Angola, 1989


The film tells the story of 19 political prisoners who travel by covered wagon, heading for Luanda – the train is held for three days at the Canhoca station. Fortunato said his intention was to create a “melting pot, where all human actions retracted in normal situations.”

This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
