CANTO NEGRO POR LA LUZ
A personal journey into Black Civil Rights movements in Ecuador.
IN DEVELOPMENT / ANIMATED DOCUMENTARY
Reflecting on her early encounters with racism, director Tamara Shogaolu explores black consciousness in Ecuador. While talking to locals and learning about their experiences, she takes us on a journey across the regions of Esmeraldas, Guayaquil, Quito, and Valle del Chota.
Canto Negro por la Luz weaves together interviews, archival footage and animation to explore the ongoing and complicated conversation around race. Simple questions — such as, "Where do we come from?" "Who are we?" and "Where are we going?" — can still have complicated answers.
