The Rainbow House Woman

Gilberto Alexandre Sobrinho, 23', 2017


The film is about Mãe Dango, priestess of Candomblé Angola, and her trajectory of great achievements. The life of Mãe Dango is marked by the ancestry inherited from her father, who passed her the teachings of the Banta culture. Priestess of Candomblé Angola, her trajectory is about great achievements and overcoming the violent racism of the country. The Rainbow House shelters all her children and she defines it as a “quilombo”, where the “inquices” are worshiped and where it’s built one more chapter of the history of the black resistance in Brazil.
