Rapport Festival returns to Brixton for its third year, presenting a weekend of African Diaspora arts and culture, and film as well (Festival dates: 28-30 June).

Programme:

Two Brazilian short films by filmmaker and University of São Paulo MA graduate, Renato Candido de Lima:

Simone: Stories at a Transfer Station (Simone: Estórias em estação de transferências)

The short film brings a daily break of the Simone character. She makes a date with her boyfriend at CPTM’s Júlio Prestes station and waits for him for long and harrowing hours. In this anguish we enter Simone’s imagination, where her boyfriend and other male figures appear as stereotypes in Brazilian history, social memory and Simone’s life. Traversing imagination and the reality of waiting, Simone exorcises her anguish and finds herself in dignity as a Black Woman.

and

Dara: The First Time I Went to the Sky (Dara - A primeira vez que fui ao céu)

Dara is a 10-year-old black girl from the rural area of Bahia/Brazil in the 1960s. On the eve of moving to São Paulo, Dara wants to set up a swing in a cashew tree where she lives with her grandparents and her little brother. Her parents are already in São Paulo, it's time for the girl to leave.
