Dir: Guilherme César | 2017| Brazil |Short Doc.| 18 min
In times of violent intolerance, WHERE THE CHILDREN PLAY follows, on the borders of a huge city, a group of children who, between the neighborhood and the woods, live in the joyful adventures and the learning of a Candomblé’s House.
THE VALLEY OF BLACK DECENDANTS (EL VALLE DE LOS NEGROS)
Dir. Richard Salgado | 2016 | Chile | Full-length Doc | 52 min
In the Azapa Valley (Chile), an oasis in the driest desert in the world, a group of descendants of enslaved men and women brought from Africa is organizing the first African census in the history of Chile. Their aim is to get official recognition from the State that has concealed their culture and African identity for more than 200 years.
