ABOUT THE FILM
"The film follows Cape Verde from colony to independence and while political events remain in the background they are an essential part to understanding Napumoceno. An engrossing film on the ironies of crossing lines of class and power."
Phyllis Peres, University of Maryland
"As a meditation on life and the choices one makes, O Testamento Do Senhor Napumoceno is touching with an accessible story and fresh locations. It takes a universal story and gives it the added spice of a culture largely unknown to American audiences."
"For the first time there is a Cape Verdean movie to enlighten all generations and bring the crioulo lifestyle to the big screen."
