The experimental documentary Quilombo, Continuum (2023, 23 min, Juliana Streva) interrupts and challenges the myths of social cohesion and racial democracy in Brazil. Combining archival material with statements from the Black Radical Tradition spoken by Beatriz Nascimento, Lélia Gonzalez, and Abdias Nascimento, as well as by the contemporary activists and politicians such as Erica Malunguinho, Debora Dias, Julio Cesar, and others, the film invites viewers to take a closer look at the practice of quilombo. The multitude of voices, practices, and memories the documentary encompasses offer a guide through the history of quilombos and their reactivation today.
