The Malê Revolt

Directed by Jeferson DE, Belisario Franca

After working hard for more than a decade, a muslim slave named Guilhermina  finally saves up enough money to buy her manumission, as well as her 11-year-old daughter’s. When she tries to pay her master, the landowner breaks an old promise and refuses to let the little girl go. At the same time, the most prominent leader of the Muslim community in Salvador, Pacífico Licutan, is arrested by local authorities, and a jihad becomes imminent. In despair, Guilhermina starts to see the uprising as the last opportunity of setting her daughter free.
