"Illuminating...Flirts with greatness...Diegues has a flair for carnival madness." -- J. Hoberman, Village Voice

Quilombo, Carlos Diegues' historical saga, is a stirring fusion of folklore, political impact, and dynamic storytelling, realized in vibrant tropical colors and set to the puling beat of Gilberto Gil's musical score.

The story derives from fact; in 17th century Brazil, groups of runaway black slaves escaped to strongholds, where they formed self-governing communities known as quilombos. Like Alex Haley's Roots, this film chronicles Palmares, the most famous of these "Black El Dorados" which flourished for several decades under the reign of the legendary chieftain Ganga Zumba.
