About the event
This week of events hosted by Casa Brasil & ADDverse + Poesia aims to celebrate Blackness in tandem with Brazil’s Black Consciousness Day, a national holiday celebrated every November 20.
It is a day to honor Zumbi dos Palmares, one of the great leaders of the Quilombo dos Palmares, and the legacy of all quilombo communities.
Wednesday - November 16 is Movie Night! Join us for a private screening of Mars One/ Marte Um, directed by Gabriel Martins, has been selected as the South American country’s official contender for Best International Feature Film at the 95th Academy Awards.
About Mars One / Marte Um (Synopsis):
The Martins are optimistic dreamers, quietly leading their lives on the margins of a major Brazilian city following the disappointing election of a far-right extremist president. A lower-middle-class Black family, they feel the strain of their new reality as the political dust settles.
Tércia, the mother, reinterprets her world after anunexpected encounter leaves her wondering if she’s cursed. Her husband, Wellington, puts all of his hopes into the soccer career of their son, Deivinho, who reluctantly follows his father’s ambitions despite secretly aspiring to study astrophysics and colonize Mars. Meanwhile, their older daughter, Eunice, falls in love with a free spirited young woman and ponders whether it’s time to leave home.
