Can the future foresee the past? Can it reinvent the way we interpret the histories and documents that arrived in our time? Drawing on archival materials and oral testimonies, the films in this program introduce underrepresented groups or individuals as narrators of their own stories.

Pode o futuro prever o passado? Ou reinventar a forma como interpretamos as histórias e os documentos que chegaram até nossos tempos? Usando imagens de arquivo, os filmes-ensaios desta sessão apresentam indivíduos ou grupos sub-representados como narradores de suas próprias histórias.

Memories of Brazil's history of slavery overflow into ethereal landscapes and harrowing noises. Through a poetic visual essay, an intimate sensory journey reflects on the silencing and erasure of Black people in the African diaspora.
