Black Brazilian Cinema is a concept that affirms the presence and the black culture in cinema since the arrival of the first literate slaves in Brazil, at the same time that it questions the structure of cultural and knowledge production. In this article, we seek a pedagogical approach to black cinema. The objective is to work with the universe of meanings and discourses existing in the film NEGRUM3 (2018), by the filmmaker Diego Paulino. We consider that ancestry, converted into an analytical category, is a key concept to understand the discourse present in the analyzed film, in which it becomes evident the need to establish a dialogue with the African past, in an attempt to resignify the boundaries of gender and sexuality for Afrodiasporic populations in the present and in the future. In this sense, we analyze the film considering the concept of Pretagogia that values the body and the orality, as a producer of black epistemology and identity. We establish dialogues with black authors/authors and carry out an analysis that considers the film as an artistic work that grounds meanings in narrative structures by means of filmic, visual and sound apparatuses. Our article demarcates the pedagogical character of Brazilian Black Cinema and demonstrates how it can make paradigmatic changes through the way it portrays certain themes, making possible the reconstitution of black history and the establishment of a pedagogy of hope.
