From a romance between two young Black women to a street dance battle for the most enthralling choreography, the films presented in this program focus on Black communities’ narratives; their resistance movements in social and imaginary spaces.


Do envolvimento amoroso entre duas jovens negras até a competição de street dance pela coreografia mais contagiante, os filmes reunidos nesta sessão concentram narrativas de comunidades negras, seus movimentos de resistência por espaços sociais e imaginários.

Shot in the early months of the pandemic, República portrays a country on the brink of collapse amid the claustrophobia of quarantine. In the República neighborhood of São Paulo, a woman contends with yelping dogs, menacing strangers, and her own mounting delirium. Moments of dark humor abound as she slowly realizes that “Brazil is a dream.”
