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.

In this meditative visual poem inspired by the work of Virgilio Piñera, a seaside community used to drudgery and toil is visited by Yemaya, a charismatic sea goddess. Pattaki utilizes primordial symbolism of the water, sky, and moon to create an eerie and mystical atmosphere. Moments of prayer and ritual, solace and ecstasy, build to a startling climax.
