bárbara balaclava

Thiago Martins de Melo

Curator: Moacir dos Anjos | Session: Distribution of Bodies and Representation of What Remains

In a vertiginous editing of images and sounds, the animated film bárbara balaclava shows scenes of conflict in the history of Brazil. It is a testament to the longevity of the processes of violent expropriation of material and symbolic riches of the country’s native populations, and exposes the mechanisms of corporeal and psychic subjugation imputed on the enslaved Negros in Brazil’s past and on their descendants. At the same time, it mobilizes memories, beliefs and everything that resists death to tell the stories of those peoples’ insurrections.
