Slavery represented a rupture to an estimated 12.5 million Africans brought by force to the Americas between the sixteenth and nineteenth centuries, 46% of them to Brazil.

The series Brazil: DNA Africa aims to collaborate in the rescue process of the origin of Brazilians of African descent in telling the story of five ordinary citizens who have their DNA tested in order to discover their African heritage. Over 10 weeks of filming in five Brazilian states and five African countries, our Brazilian crew from DNA Africa captured the emotions of the characters as they discover their ethnic African ancestry.
