Description
Garnering Best Actress and Best Film awards for director/star Maria de Medeiros at the Portuguese Golden Globes, this stirring film from 2000 dramatizes the story of the 1974 people's coup that overthrew the right-wing Portuguese dictatorship, in power since 1933. In Portuguese with English subtitles.

"Their nearly bloodless 'Carnation Revolution' overthrew a tyranny, despite its ruthless thugs and torturers, paving the way for Portugal's rapid emergence as a modern democratic nation. 'April Captains' was a labor of love for Medeiros, who co-wrote the film. With fictionalized characters who are closely inspired by the real life dramatis personae, she has fashioned an intelligent screenplay that is sometimes very witty and often very inspiring…. It's an old-fashioned story, in the best sense of that term, for it depicts ordinary men and women who find it within themselves to do the extraordinary."—Arts Forum
