Angola: Camp 13 is about the generation of patriots who left everything behind and went to pursue the liberation struggle in Africa. It deals with sins of the past, plumbing the dark depths of human rights abuses that took place in the Umkhonto weSizwe (MK) camps around Africa and the abuse of power by the party’s leaders and military commanders during its exile years. It is a brave and unflinching look at one of the ANC’s darkest periods.
