Screening of Yemanjá: Wisdom from the African Heart of Brazil

“Yemanjá: Wisdom from the African Heart of Brazil” explores the Afro-Brazilian culture, worldview, and spiritual practice of Candomblé, through the voices of dynamic elder women leaders. A powerful legacy of enslaved Africans forced to Brazil during the Trans-Atlantic slave trade, Candomblé embodies universal wisdom and values. The title ‘Yemanjá’ honors the Yoruba/Brazilian Goddess of the oceans and sea, considered sacred in Candomblé. Devotees revere elders, ancestors, the natural world, and spiritual forces or guides known as Orixás. Addressing history, social and environmental justice, and the power of faith and community, the film tells a compelling story for our times.
