Guns for Banta was the first feature-length film by Sarah Maldoror. Shot in Guinea-Bissau, Guns for Banta follows the life and untimely death of Awa, a countrywoman involved in the African Party for the Independence of Guinea and Cape Verde (PAIGC).

The film was commissioned by the Algerian Army, but later seized as Maldoror refused to concede editing rights. It is a lost film, save for a few photographs from the shoot in Guinea-Bissau.
