Born in Lisbon during the Fascist Regime in order to control the students that came from the Portuguese overseas colonies, the House of Students of the Empire became a meeting space fundamental in the struggles for independence of the Portuguese colonies. Future anti-colonial and national movement leaders such as Agostinho Neto and Amílcar Cabral were all members of the House and participated in its social and political activities. The historical documentary The House recovers memories and testimonies by some of its surviving members while also adapting to screen excerpts of Pepetela’s novel “A Geração da Utopia“.
