GILDA BRASILEIRO - Against Oblivion

a feature documentary by Roberto Manhães Reis and Viola Scheuerer

coming very soon..!


Gilda Brasileiro discovers documents about an illegal slave-trading point in the Brazilian rainforest. Whereas none of the locals want to remember the past, the daughter of a Jewish woman and Afro-Brazilian man finds it unacceptable. Despite the abolition of the transatlantic slave trade in 1831, hundreds of thousands of enslaved Africans continued to be taken to Brazil. A strong woman goes out in search of memory and history in the world largest coffee-growing region in the 19th century. Photos of enslaved men, women and children on plantations provide a disconcerting understanding of a distant time.
