3- What is your opinion regarding the responsibility of Belgium in all the events described in the movie?
4- What did you think of the movie? Please elaborate.
5- The Political Film Society nominated Lumumba for awards as “best 2001 film on democracy, human rights, and peace” as well as “best political film exposé”. In your opinion, why is that? If you disagree with that choice, feel free to say so. In both cases, justify your opinion.
6- Why does this film belong to the so-called “Francophone movies” category? How is it different of the traditional US and/or European movie?
7- Do a brief research on Mobutu: Who was he, how did he take control of the country? What type of leader was he? For how long? What are the most striking events that happened during his ruling?
8.Why/how the terrible events that ravaged Rwanda from 1994 until 1997 – and especially the Rwandan genocide that happened between April and July 1994 – are related to the Belgian colonization?
