Quilombola Action


On July 28, 2006 a Quilombola community in a Brasilian rural village took action to reclaim a cemetery where their slave ancestors were buried, now covered with eucalyptus monoculture by Norwegen Multinational, Aracruz Cellulose. Together with music, dance and ritual the community combines civil disobedience and clearly articulates demands to their lands. This revealing 9 minute documentary looks at how slavery persists over time and explores affects of environmental racism.
