          Dança das Cabaças - Exu no Brasil é uma investigação poética sobre a divindade africana Exu no imaginário brasileiro. Trazido pelos escravos com outros Deuses do panteão Yoruba, Exu foi colocado à margem e passou por um processo de demonização que se inicia na missão católica na África e se estende no período colonial brasileiro, onde seus atributos originais foram ocultados. Exu que na África era caracterizado como o princípio da vida, a força que move os corpos, a dinâmica, o senhor dos caminhos e das encruzilhadas, a principal ponte entre os mortais e as divindades que habitam o além, passa a ser visto como a personificação do mal perante o modelo cristão, devido ao seu seu símbolo fálico e seu comportamento astucioso. Dirigido por Kiko Dinucci, o filme passa pelas diversas vertentes das religiões afro-descendentes, dos candomblés (de tradição Nagô, Gege, Bantu), Tambor de Mina, passando pela Umbanda e Quimbanda. Dança das Cabaças-Exu no Brasil conta com participações de Sacerdotes e estudiosos. dancadascabacas.blogspot.com DANCE OF CALABASH - EXU IN BRAZIL - (2006) - Time: 54 min.Format: Mini DVDirected by: Kiko DinucciDance of Calabash - Exu in Brazil is an poetic investigation on the African divinity Exu in the brazilian imaginary. Alongside other Yoruba Gods, Exu was brought to Brazil by the slaves and became demonized during the colonial period, when catholic missions in Africa and in Brazil concealed its original attributes. In Africa, Exu was viewed as the beginning of life, the force that moved bodies, the lord of the paths and cross-roads. It was the main link between the dead and the gods. For the Christians, it became the personification of evil, due to its falic symbol and astute behaviour. Directed by Kiko Dinucci, the movie investigates the different African-brazilian religions, such as candomblé (Nagô, Gege and Bantu traditions), Tambor de Mina, Umbanda and Quimbanda. Special appearances of priests, clergyman and scholars.
