Town Hall Theater presents
Yemanja is a 52 minute documentary exploring ethics, social justice, racism, ecological sustainability and true power found in community and faith, via the stories of extraordinary elder female leaders of the Afro-indigenous Candombie spiritual tradition in Bahia, Brazil.
In metropolitan Salvador, the Americas’ largest slave port during the trans-Atlantic slave trade, slavery’s brutal history was transformed into a vibrant religio-cultural tradition in Brazil, the world’s largest Catholic country. Candomblé is a brilliant example of resilience, profound dedication to one’s heritage and the forces of nature that sustain us all. In the face of tremendous planetary and humanitarian crises, these ancient wisdoms offer inspiration for our shared global concerns.
