Description


¡GUERRA A LA GUERRA! (War against War!) is the first documentary film of Molenaar & Van Wijk, set in a secondary boarding school for Angolan children on the Isla de la Juventud ('Youth Island'), formerly known als Isla de Pinos, Cuba.

The film - meant for a young audience - is inspired by Van Wijk's then recent experiences during his work as a doctor during the so-called 'second liberation war' in Angola (1975-76), when he came to know a lot about Cuba and its international activities.
