Documentary Screening of Afro Atlantic Legacies & Conversation with Filmmaker, Xavier Vatin
In the 1940’s, Afro-Brazilian religious music was recorded and analyzed by Dr. Lorenzo Turner, an African-American linguist. This film presents Turner’s research and follows the journey as the recordings are returned to their rightful owners and community members in Bahia, Brazil.
After the screening, there will be a conversation with Dr. Xavier Vatin, ethnomusicologist & filmmaker of Afro Atlantic Legacies, Universidade Federal do Recôncavo da Bahia, Brazil. Dr. Vatin will join the discussion virtually.
