This is a tribute to a fearless man, who fought for his people freedom during the First War of the South Sudan Independence.
Questa è una testimonianza per un uomo che non temeva la morte ed aveva combattuto per la libertà del suo popolo durante la prima guerra di indipendenza del Sud Sudan
Probably this is the only video document – published on the net – of the Anya-Nya guerrillas of South Sudan Liberation Front in the First War of South Sudan’s Independence (1956-1972).
It was “shot” in 16 mm. in November 1970. The author Giorgio Rapanelli was the third Italian to smuggle in South Sudan, after the actor and documentary filmmaker Antonio Cifariello, and the journalist Francesco Rosso.
Giorgio Rapanelli met in the Adodi’s village Samuel Lolik Lado and Abdel Rahman Sule.
