The Brazilian film history could only take account until now, before the Dogma Feijoada Movement, of 11 black Brazilian film directors, an insufficient number compared to the composition of this ethnic group to the demography of the country.
The ones who made it, were the result of some sporadic though courageous trials of black actors who deviated towards the directing career. None of them though made more than one single movie, short or long.
Some movies made before the Dogma Feijoada Manifest:
