A film to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Fall of Fascism in Portugal 

Viva Portugal is a Franco-German documentary made in 1975 and adapted for British audiences by film collective Cinema Action. It depicts the momentous events that followed the overthrow of the fascist regime on the 25th April 1974 by a military coup led by middle-ranking officers who wanted to put an end to Portugal’s bloody 13-year colonial wars. The coup was followed by a popular uprising that became known as the Carnation Revolution because the population had showered the soldiers with carnations.

Introduced by Alvaro de Miranda, a Loughborough Junction resident and Portuguese exile who participated in the film’s production
