Brazilian black art and memory will be in evidence in the Distrito Federal for two weeks with the festival ODU – Festival de Arte Negra (Black Art Festival). The event, conceived by local artists, reaches its second edition with programs between the 8th and 18th of July, always from Thursday to Sunday. Due to the pandemic, the 2021 festival will be completely online, broadcast via YouTube (Link at the end of the article). The opening ceremony takes place on Thursday, July 8th, at 7pm. Theater, cinema, music, poetry, fashion and literature are expressions used to exalt black art through this gathering of artists from all over Brazil.

The moment is also a space for reflection offered to the public with programs such as the two film shows entitled CEI and São Sebas. In the first, there is recognition of the work of teacher Gina Vieira Ponte — an educator from the Brazilian state of Ceará who uses art for reflections and debates on issues of gender, equity and the struggle for women’s rights. The second highlights the work of the artist Edvair Ribeiro, poet, potter and griot closely linked to the memory and history of the neighborhood of São Sebastião, in Distrito Federal.

In addition, the public can check out theatrical shows, such as “Nas encruzas” (In the Crossroads) – a production from the state of Bahia that discusses the prejudice and violence against black people in Brazil – by actor Leno Sacramento, and the film Afeto (Affection) – which discusses the possible and denied relationships of two black women — with direction and text by Fernanda Jacob and Tuanny Araujo.
