Raphaël Grisey


A quilombo, a community of descendants of former slaves, is about to be born, or rather to reacquire visibility, in a valley threatened by a multinational mining concern. In town, real estate speculation is invading another quilombo, while the women of the community are valiantly fighting to preserve what remains and win back stolen lands. Remanescentes is a documentary essay on the quilombola question and the complex relations Brazil maintains with their origins. Raphaël Grisey follows and interweaves together various situations of struggle for the right to land, while immersing the audience in the cosmology of Brazil’s “maroon” culture.
