About this event

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.
