ABOUT: Ori Inu film tackles the complex relationship within a family between three strong Brazilian women with different views on spirituality. In exploring her roots in Candomble with its female orishas and its matriarchal priestesses, Natalia is also looking to redefine her own views of what it means to be a woman. This contrasts with her mother's belief that happiness can be found in conforming to the status quo. Natalia’s journey in search of self through spiritual and deep connections to her African ancestry is one that can be related to the journey of many African diasporic people. At the same time, this film brings the struggle of the Brazilian religion of Candomble as well as other African religions to the forefront of the conversation.
