Muxima is the first film by Alfredo Jaar. It is structured around five recordings of "Muxima," an Angolan folk song that serves as the central motif for Jaar’s portrait of a complex and changing society. Muxima (meaning "heart" in the indigenous Angolan language Kimbundu) is “a cinematic elegy dedicated to the people of Angola.”
