Quilombos, do Campo Grande aos Martins

49 min - Brazil Flavio Frederico

Brazilian historians estimate that in Minas Gerais State alone there existed more than 100 "Quilombos" (settlements of runaway African slaves brought to Brazil) during the colonial times. The film depicts the daily life of Dona Luzia in the district of Quilombo, located in the Mantiqueira Mountain Range, and recovers part of the Brazilian slave history, which was largely written out of the country's official history.
