Exú in Brazil – a documentary

 

In Brazil, there are multiple understandings of Exú. In Candomblé, Exú is the messenger Orixá – the beginning and ending of everything. In Umbanda, Exú (and Pombagira) are spiritual manifestations of the dead with Bantu influences. Still, there are those who think Exú is a demon and nothing more than a representation of the Judeo-Christian devil. This documentary, Exú no Brasil, breaks down the differences between the three schools of thought and provides a deeper understanding of Exú’s significance. It’s in Portuguese, and, unfortunately, CC/translation hasn’t been enabled for this video.
