The film Jongos, Calangos and Folias: Black Music, Memory and Poetry is a historiographical documentary made from the audiovisual archives of Acervo UFF Petrobrás Cultural Memória e Música Negra. It is also intended for educational purposes, following the Brazilian National Curriculum Guidelines for Education of Ethnic-Racial Relations and the Teaching of Afro-Brazilian and African History and Culture, published in 2004. The history of jongos, calangos and folias, as cultural heritage, is presented associated with the history of social groups that support it. The film highlights the role of black poetry in all three cultural manifestations and its role in the political legitimation of the remaining Quilombo communities of the state of Rio de Janeiro.
