Cores Botas

A short film to start the new week, courtesy of the Black Women Of Brazil blog. It's titled Cores e Botas (Colors and Boots), and comes from Juliana Vicente.

Synopsis:

Joana has the same dream as all young Brazilian girls in the 80s: she wants to be a "Paquita", a dancer on Xuxa's TV show. Her family is wealthy, and will support her. However, there is a problem: she is black and Xuxa never had a black Paquita on her team.

There's a lot more back-story to the film's subject which you should read to really get the full picture. Instead of me copying and pasting it here, I'll send you over to the Black Women Of Brazil blog for that HERE.

Here's the short:
