A sequel, of sorts, to Ganga Zumba. After the revolt of 1641, groups of runaway black slaves escaped to mountainous strongholds where they formed self-governing, utopian communities known as quilombos. This stirring fusion of folklore, political impact and dynamic storytelling is realized in vibrant tropical colors and set to the pulsing beat of Gilberto Gil’s score.
