In this provocative directorial debut from renowned Brazilian actor Lázaro Ramos, a dystopian future sees the Brazilian government, intent on introducing radical racial laws, pass a decree that forces Black citizens to migrate to Africa. Finding themselves at the centre of the ensuing panic, two cousins take refuge in an apartment where they debate social and racial issues, while sharing the same yearning for change in their country.
This screening takes place on Brazil’s Discovery Day. Director and panellists will debate the relevance of the date in the context of the film, racism and the 21st century.
