A ne­ces­si­dade de fazer um ví­deo, au­mentou de­pois de ve­ri­ficar que a maior parte das pes­soas não se aper­ce­beram da his­tória do tema.
O Ba­zuka as­senta no de­poi­mento de um po­pular que, no mambo tipo do­cu­men­tário "É Dreda Ser An­go­la­no", deixa no ar uma per­gunta sem res­posta: Quem me rus­gou? Ele foi rus­gado em cri­ança, ou seja, re­cru­tado à força para com­bater na guerra, perdeu a sua fa­mília e so­bre­viveu com problemas graves de saúde. Encontrámo-lo em Lu­anda em 2005. Tem nome. É o sol­dado des­co­nhe­cido. Vivo. Con­va­les­cente. Tem es­ti­lhaço di guerra no corpo e na ca­be­ça. E en­frenta todos dias uma nova ba­ta­lha. A so­bre­vi­vência em tempo de paz. Ya. Só era is­so.

This time, i dived into the ar­chives of RTP Africa. The idea was to se­lect images that il­lus­trate the hidden story behind "Ba­zuka", the track that started "Dance Mwan­golé". Hand-​picked and mixed his­to­rical fo­o­tage, with some con­tem­po­rary images col­lected over the last ye­ars. Others were sam­pled from the do­cu­men­tary "É Dreda Ser An­go­lano". Limão made a few extra il­lus­tra­ti­ons, Ma­caco Simão did the ani­ma­tion and it was con­cluded with some post pro­duc­tion. The need to make this video in­cre­a­sed, be­cause most pe­ople couldn't get the mi­nimal story behind "Ba­zuka".
So here it is: "Ba­zuka" is based on the tes­ti­mony of a po­pular on the do­cu­men­tary "É Dreda Ser An­go­lano", who raises an unanswered ques­tion: "Who drafted me?" He was "drafted" as a child, or re­cruited and forced to fight in war, got lost from his fa­mily and sur­vived with se­rious he­alth pro­blems. He has a name. He is the unk­nown sol­dier. Has "got two pi­eces of sh­rapnel from the war, in his head" and faces a new battle every­day: The sur­vival in time of pe­ace. "Ya. That's all i have to say."
