African seeds have been falling on fertile land for more than 500 years, germinating among families and maroons who are running towards freedom all over the world.
Cinema presents itself as a tool to give life to an identity abused by history and to needs to be claimed.
Afro-descendant leaders are building, step by step, the eternal image of the African diaspora.
This screening is a gift for those who fight, march, dance and sing along with friends from the Altiplano, who in search of a claim unite and thank life in a single carnival.
