Udju Azul di Yonta / The Blue Eyes of Yonta (1992) DVD5
Life in post-independent Guinea Bissau is affectionately and tellingly captured in this ravishingly beautiful and insightful feature from Flora Gomes, who brings a vibrant sense of people, place, politics and atmosphere to the screen.

Udju Azul di Yonta tells the story of three people, each of whom is so much in love with their dreams that they mis the real opportunities which life offers. Vicente, a hero of the revolution, now a businessman, is so despondent over the failure of his political ideas that he fails to notice the flirtations of Yonta, the beautiful, young daughter of two former comrades. Yonta represents the younger generation who have grown up since independence and replaced revolutionary rhetoric with an unabashed enthusiasm for Western consumer culture. She, in turn, is oblivious to the attentions of Ze, a poor student from the country, who sends her absurdly romantic poems (actually written for a Swedish girl) praising her improbably "blue eyes".
