Sombra di Koló ('The Shadow of Color') (CuracaO)

Curaçao, a small Caribbean island off the Venezuelan coast, was once an important Dutch colony. It has a population of approximately 140.000 people that is racially and especially ethnically diverse, yet predominantly of African descent. In five neighbourhoods, each distinct in their racial and class make-up, a total of thirty Curaçaoans of all ages and all walks of life share what "race" and "skin color" mean to them today.


Hijos del Destierro ('Sons of Exile')‎ (HONDURAS)

Memories of the Garifuna community of Central America. A historic trip through a community who has retained its culture through centuries and whose language UNESCO named "Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangibles Heritage of Humanity". English version
