Between the discovery of a territory and the reinvention of a community, the residents of Quilombo Marques, in Mucuri Valley, recover part of their history, their fight, their songs and traditions. The movie’s collective dimension, which affects the images, establishes a gesture of resistance, the reaffirmation of an ancestry and the desire for intervention in the present. If the territory is still in dispute, one must keep believing in the power of community cinema to put the world in motion.
