Synopsis

A voice echoes through the woods, chanting verses of memory and faith. Through a meticulous recording of performances and rituals that emerge in direct relation with the camera and the act of filming, Brazilian colonial history is reexamined from collective movements of healing and ancestral resistance. Produced by the Intersectional Training Program in Traditional Knowledge (UFMG) and guided by the songs and dances of masters of Afro-Diasporic traditions and religions, the film invites us to join the circle, advancing cautiously. (C.M.)
