Fahavalo, Madagascar 1947 is a 2019 franco-malagasy documentary film.


The little-known story of a post WWII insurrection by the indigenous population of Madagascar, an island nation off the coast of east Africa, becomes a multi-faceted walk through history in this film that is both ethnographic documentary and chronicle of a revolution. A French colony in 1947, the island had been promised independence by Charles de Gaulle, a reward for providing wartime manpower and assistance to the Allies. A failure to follow through touched off political chaos and a resulting brutal crackdown that pitched the sophisticated forces of France against Malagasy guerillas fighting with spears, machetes, and magic spells.
