The majority of the knowledge and philosophy of African roots find a great discrimination in public places in Brazil, rarely we see schools take in consideration those questions, popular knowledge and ways of living of those who follow those religions of African roots. Take in account that reality and seeking for changing it, the members of Abassá of goddess Òsùn of Idjemim, Paulo Afonso - BA, Bahia took the initiative of producing an animated stop motion movie about the Òrìṣà Òsùn. In this short motion “Òpárà de Òsùn: when everything is born” (2018) we can see the language of animation cinema being used to tell stories of Òrìṣàs like of a way clamouring the religiosity from people from traditional places and also a way of facing religious racism. In this work, we will present the process of production of a short motion, that took in consideration the bio system Caatinga and of the Sao Francisco river as a scenery of some events, staring from the sonorities and images produced by the people in the Terreiro and including the poetic language (could it be sounding and visual or spoken). From those elements, we reflect about the role played by this short movie on the empowerment of children and territorially as didactic and educative space.
