ABOUT THE PROGRAM
TRANSCRIPT

-While on a quest to uncover the history

of a tourist destination,

Gilda passionately investigates the untold stories

of illegal slave trading in Brazil.

Slavery in Brazil was abolished in 1888.

However, a massive network of corruption

was formed to supply cheap labor to the bustling coffee industry.

[ Gilda speaking Portuguese ]

-Directors Roberto Manhaes Reis and Viola Scheuerer

present an exploration of identity

and ancestry from Gilda's discoveries.

While the past may be difficult,

the legacy of slavery cannot be erased.
