Inspired by Black Panther Eldridge Cleaver’s book Soul on Ice and dedicated to John Coltrane, Soul in the Eye marks the beginning of Black Brazilian films. The film is a metaphor about slavery and the search for freedom through inner transformation, in a game inspired by concretism.

Also see Abolição, Pequena África and Aniceto do Império em dia de alforria.
