    Lumumba is a political thriller that tells the story of legendary Congolese leader Patrice Emery Lumumba. His vision of a united Africa earned him powerful enemies, including the Belgian authorities and the CIA, who also supported Lumumba’s former friend, Joseph Mobutu. The film, starring Eriq Ebouaney, brilliantly documents Lumumba’s rise and rapid fall from power, just months after becoming Congo’s first post- independence leader. Lumumba was barely 30 when the first tremors of a botched decolonisation thrust him to the forefront of the international political arena. In a few years, he became the most reviled man of this intense cold war period. Becoming prime minister of one of the most mineral- and resource-rich countries in Africa meant that his destiny as tragic hero was already charted, his assassination already programmed. He would remain in power for only three months.

    Journalist and Prospective Labour Party Candidate Clive Lewis will spend the evening with young people from the mentoring programme Mixed Martial Arts Club.
