The second evening of the Diaspora Festival of Black and Independent Films will showcase a double feature of films.
The first film shown will be Where the Children Play (Brazil, 2017). In times of violent intolerance, Where the Children Play follows, on the borders of a huge city, a group of children who, between the neighborhood and the woods, live in the joyful adventures and the learning of a Candomblé’s House.
The second film of the evening is The Valley of Black Descendants (El Valle de los Negros), (Chile, 2016). In the Azapa Valley of Chile, an oasis in the driest desert in the world, a group of descendants of enslaved men and women brought from Africa is organizing the first African census in the history of Chile. Their aim is to get official recognition from the State that has concealed their culture and African identity for more than 200 years.
