Special Envoy – Documentary Film
Directed by Nalini Sousa | Edited by Gasper D’Souza | Duration: 63 mins
When Aquino de Bragança left for Mozambique and left behind his homeland – goa – where he had a relatively comfortable life, did not dream how this trip would change his whole life. Special Envoy aims to bring to light his poorly known mission in Mozambique’s independence and how many others of his dreams were eventually interrupted with the plane crash in 1986.
Very subtly, the story builds up to the point that chess pieces will be used in real-life characters. The story of Aquino de Bragança and his bond with Samora Machel are brought to the chess table until the final checkmate that dictated the end of both.
