Brazil, the country with the largest Black population outside of Africa, is dramatically impacting the film industry.  A new generation of mostly young filmmakers is changing the historical absence of Afro-descendents in almost all sectors of the film industry, an arena from which Black women have been doubly excluded. The last decade has seen a growing body of films with a diverse set of approaches to cinema which challenge the historical flattening of representations of Black life in Brazil.

6 April 2022 - Day One: Roots of Afro-Brazilian Cinema 
Opening talk by Kênia Freitas followed by screening of Raquel Gerber’s Ôrí: A reconstrução da identidade negra no Brasil (The Reconstruction of Black Identity in Brazil, 1989) and Zózimo Bulbul's Alma no Olho (Soul in the Eye, 1973)
