The Train of Salt and Sugar

Comboio de Sal e Açucar

Directed by Licinio Azevedo
Portugal, Mozambique, 2016


In 1989, Mozambique is a country ruined by civil war. The train that connects Nampula to Malawi is the only hope for people willing to risk their lives to exchange a few bags of salt for sugar. Running slowly over sabotaged tracks, the journey is filled with obstacles and violence.
