1988, 41:00 minutes, colour, Portugese/English


This videotape was originally produced for the centennial celebration of the abolition of slavery in Brazil. Far from an anniverary salute, it reveals the pervasiveness of prefudice against Blacks in a society that sees itself as a racial democracy. The tape explores both the diversity of Black culture and its profound influence, on and appropriation by, White society.
