A mythopoetic feast of self-discovery that crosses three continents and three generations, É MINHA CARA/That’s My Face traces the filmmaker’s journey to Salvador Da Bahia, the African heart and soul of Brazil, as he seeks the identity of the spirits who haunt his dreams. Paralleling the journey his mother made twenty years before to Tanzania in search of a mythic motherland, the film incorporates an innovative sound design that uses rap and hip hop strategies of multi-voice sampling.
The film will be screened as part of Professor Harris’s African American Studies and Film & Media Studies “Archive Aesthetics & Community Storytelling” course and is open to the Yale community.
