David Achkar – Allah Tantou AKA God’s Will (1992)

Synopsis:
‘Allah Tantou’ is the first African film to confront the immense personal and political costs of the continent’s widespread human rights abuses. Director David Achkar has described the origins of his film: “Every year Amnesty International publishes a list of countries where human rights are ignored, including the estimated number of those unjustly imprisoned and executed in each. My father was one of those who died anonymously. In 1986, by a strange twist of fate, an envelope containing letters written by my father in prison was brought to me. Years later, still trying to make my first film, I watched some home movies my father had shot and then opened that envelope for the first time. I decided immediately to make Allah Tantou”. Using these movies and letters, as well as newsreels and dramatization, David Achkar reconstructs his father’s life, which closely parallels the rise and fall of Africa’s own hopes for independence. Marof Achkar became a prominent figure in Sekou Toure’s postcolonial government, Guinea’s UN ambassador and an articulate international spokesman for African causes. Recalled to Conakry in 1968, he was imprisoned and secretly executed in 1971. His family was expelled from Guinea and was only notified of his demise after Toure´’s death in 1984.
