ADIFF GALA Saturday, December 14 @ 8PM - Teachers College, The Chapel
Raça Directed by Joel Zito Araújo and Megan Mylan, Brazil/USA US Premiere
In a country with the world's second largest black population and a reputation for racial harmony, black Brazilians remain nearly absent in the halls of power and history books. But things are changing. Raça follows three people on the front lines of a hauntingly familiar, yet quintessentially Brazilian, battle for equality. In the modernist capital of Brasilia, the country's only black senator fights for landmark civil rights legislation. In the fast-paced metropolis of São Paulo, a famous black pop-star launches a TV station with a cast that looks like Brazil rather than Scandinavia. And deep in the rural countryside, a granddaughter of slaves mobilizes her neighbors to defend ancestral land rights.
Q&A followed by reception.
