Kbela (Portuguese / English subtitles)
15 minutes / 2016
Director: Yasmin Thayná
A sensitive look at the experience of racism suffered by black women in Brazil. Beautifully photographed and packed with symbolism, song and movement, Kbela invokes the ancestral powers and beauty of Mama Africa as expressed in the natural hair of the black woman. It invites us on a transformational journey of self discovery, self-representation and empowerment.
