[Dear Dr. Nimtz, We have two films done by journalists inside liberated areas of Mozambique with FRELIMO.]

Letter from Ruth B. Minter to August N. Nimtz, Jr. responding to request about films available in Madison. Minter says they have available “Viva FRELIMO” by Dutch Kenmark TV (1969) and “Venceremos” by Novosti Films in Yugoslavia (1967). Minter shares experience about how to show the films, including having someone present who can discuss Portuguese colonialism. “Viva FRELIMO” was filmed mostly within FRELIMO-controlled areas. Another film, “A Luta Continua,” by an Afro-American team, is more recent and is available from the New World Resource Center in Chicago. “Behind the Lines,” from Britain, is available from the Committee for a Free Mozambique in New York. Minter enclosed literature lists from the American Committee on Africa (ACOA), Liberation Support Movement, and the Corporate Information Center, and the address of International Defense and Aid Fund. [Ruth Minter later changed her name to Ruth Brandon.]
