Ôrí (1989). Directed by Raquel Gerber. Length: 91 min. The film is guided by the voice and by “ôrí” (Yorubá concept for a portion of our orientation in the world-body) by Beatriz Nascimento. The history of black movements in Brazil between 1977 and 1988 is told in the documentary Ôrí, released in 1989, by filmmaker and sociologist Raquel Gerber. Using the life of historian and activist Beatriz Nascimento as a connecting thread, the film traces a social, political and cultural panorama of the country, in search of an identity that also contemplates black populations, and shows the importance of the quilombos in the formation of nationality. Ôrí means head, a term of Yoruba origin, a West African people, which, by extension, also designates the black consciousness in its relationship with time, history, and memory. With photography by Hermano Penna, Pedro Farkas, Jorge Bodanzky, among others, music by Naná Vasconcelos and arrangements by Teese Gohl.
