The(ir) Blurb...

BLACKN3SS dives into the journey of the black youth of São Paulo. Following the afrofuturistic immaginary and merging interviews and performances, the movie presents the aesthetics of those who accept, recognize and comprehend their own blackness as something positive and useful in the anti-racist battle. These artists live their existence in the claim of being black, queer, affirming their need and right to freedom and to the criticism of normativity.

A manifesto of the struggle for the individuality of the bodies and for the plurality of blackness. The characters, inspired by artists such as Sun Ra or Janelle Monáe, claim their existence, recalling the past in order to improve and/or rebuild the present.
