Cara (That’s My Face)," a new documentary by Fort Greene
director Thomas Allen Harris (pictured), will come to a television
near you - assuming you have cable - courtesy of the Sundance
Channel on June 9 at 9 pm.
The film follows Harris’ journey to the city of Salvador Da Bahia
in Brazil. Shot on silent Super 8 film, and shifting between
color and black-and-white, the film weaves myth, fantasy and
documentary into Harris’ search for Orishas, the African deities
who make up the core of the Afro-Brazilian religious practice
The film’s score was composed by Vernon Reid, former guitarist
of the rock group Living Colour. For more information, go to
