About the Film:

“Faith in Blackness: An Exploration of Afro-Latine Spirituality” is a short-form documentary that delves into the rich tapestry of Afro-Latine spirituality. The film will spotlight the unique and diverse lived experiences of Afro-Latines from various faith traditions, shedding light on how their Blackness is intertwined with their spirituality and vice versa. Through personal stories, the documentary illuminates the profound connections between individual experiences and the practice of faith within the Afro-Latine community.


We believe that “Faith in Blackness” has the potential to broaden our understanding of the spiritual journeys of Afro-Latines and to celebrate their engagement with faith and Black spiritual traditions.

During the discussion, he will provide insights into the making of the documentary, its significance, and its impact on the Afro-Latine community and the broader discourse on spirituality.
