In this paper, we are interested in thinking about the way in which Afro-descendent portuguese filmmakers emerge in the field of Portuguese cinema, proposing new dynamics of production and circulation of images, as well as themes related to the anticolonial issue, transposing the place of representation to self-presentation. The question of the representation of black people in Portuguese cinema takes on two central aspects of this debate in the 21st century: the need for effective participation in the field of cinematographic work, that is, producing films and occupying technical positions; and, above all, redefining the subjectivities, memories and affectivities of the black people in Portuguese society from the perspective of black people. We will analyze, in this article, the film O canto de Ossobo (2017) by Silas Tiny.
