FSU’s International Film Festival to Present “Lumumba”
12/02/2002

Frostburg State University’s Fall 2002 International Film Series will present “Lumumba” on Tuesday, Dec. 10, at 7 p.m. in the Lane University Center’s Atkinson Room 201. This series is sponsored by Center Stage and the Department of Student & Community Involvement.

A gripping political thriller, the film tells the true story of the 36-year-old Patrice Lumumba, who became the first head of the newly independent state of the Congo in 1960, which had been under Belgian rule. He lasted only two months before his brutal assassination. Possessed with a flair for oratory and an uncompromising belief in the capacity of his homeland to build a prosperous nation independent of its former Belgium overlords, Lumumba emerges as the heroic sacrificial lamb dubiously portrayed by the international media and led to slaughter by commercial and political interests in Belgium, the United States, the international community and his own administration.

This film, which runs for about two hours, is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. For information, contact the Lane University Center Information Desk at (301) 687- 4411.

FSU is committed to making all of its programs, services and activities accessible to persons with disabilities. You may request accommodations through the ADA Compliance Office, (301) 687-4102, TDD (301) 687-7955.
