Brazil Film Series

Jongos, Calangos e Folias: Música Negra, Memória e Poesia
Directed by  Hebe Mattos and Martha Abreu, 2005.

Date: Tuesday, October 14, 2008
Time: 6:00 - 8:00 pm
Location: CGIS South, Tsai Auditorium, S-010, 1730 Cambridge Street, 
Cambridge

This documentary explores the largely forgotten history of Jongos, 
Calangos and Folias de Reis, as well as the social groups associated 
with them. It documents the lives of residents of the coastal region of 
the state of Rio: the inhabitants of Vale do Paraíba, and individuals 
from the old mining towns along the Baixada Fluminense. By focusing on 
these three different regions, the film depicts the relationship between 
Jongos, Calangos and Folias de Reis, and the challenges associated with 
these unique Afro-Brazilian cultural patrimony.


This event is made possible by the generous support of the Jorge Paulo 
Lemann Fund.
