More info

When Malagasy soldiers came back from WWII, they expected De Gaulle to give them independence for fighting along with France against Nazis. Instead, they were asked to return to their indigenous status.They soon became the leaders of an uprising, harshly repressed by the French colonial authorities. The last witnesses tell us about their long months of resistance in the jungle, armed only with spears, machetes and talismans. Interweaving archives with these rare and heartfelt testimonies, the film unfolds an unknown story of rebellion.
