NYIHA Film Festival Presents: A Present Past: Afro-Brazilian Memories in Rio de Janeiro
NYIHA Film Festival
Presented with Dr. Steeve Coupeau

A Present Past: Afro-Brazilian Memories in Rio de Janeiro
Hebe Mattos and Martha Abreu, 2012, 43 min, Brazil
This documentary highlights the strong oral tradition of slave descendants from the former plantations of the Souza Breves family, in the south of the state of Rio de Janeiro in Brazli. It rescues vivid details about the illegal trade of slaves and the experiences of slaves and freed ancestors. The jongo and oral tradition are part of the cultural and family heritage that became a core aspect of the 'maroon' identity of these communities. Both support broader political struggles against racism and contribute to ensuring collective ownership of land.

Post screening Q&A with director Hebe Mattos, moderated by Dr. Steeve Coupeau, President NYIHA MEDIA.

NYIHA MEDIA promotes global aspirations for human rights beyond borders. By human rights we mean the right to food, shelter, water, health care, education, decent work, free speech, and justice and peace. Can solidarity allow us to think creatively about coming together within or across social formations to transcend the limitations of inherited oppositions between sovereignty and human rights? Global civic engagement might be the best means to achieve long-distance support for multiple citizen actions in different places. NYIHA is an African word for the bush and more broadly the borderlands. The nyiha are an ethnic and linguistic group spanning several countries including southwestern Tanzania and northeastern Zambia.
