Just Films Presents: Alice Walker & “Yemanjá: Wisdom from the African Heart of Brazil”

The Women’s Law Project is a proud co-sponsor of the Just Films festival, a new festival that screens one new social justice film per month from September through next June, in Pittsburgh.

On October 27, we will screen Yemanjá: Wisdom from the African Heart of Brazil.

This new award-winning documentary film by Donna C. Roberts (a Pittsburgh filmmaker) and Donna Read explores the fascinating Candomblé spiritual culture in Bahia, Brazil, a vibrant African-derived tradition which evolved from the ways of enslaved Africans in the New World’s largest slave port.

The film is narrated by Alice Walker, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Color Purple, who will be our special guest panelist at this Pittsburgh premiere.
