The documentary “Tabanka ka ta kaba”, by Cabo Verdean visual anthropologist Carlos Alberto Barbosa, was selected to be part of the third “International Showcase of Audiovisual Works on Intangible Cultural Heritage”, which takes place between March 25-28, in Mexico.
The information is from the Cultural Heritage Institute (IPC), which, through a press release, said that the IPC technician chose his second documentary, produced in 2017, to compete for this festival.
The Cabo Verdean documentary, according to the same source, is the first to be present at the “International Showcase of Audiovisual Works on Intangible Cultural Heritage”.
This selection, for the IPC, is an opportunity for the internationalization of tabanca, a national intangible cultural heritage since August 2019, with the Ministry of Culture and Creative Industries working on the application process for the intangible cultural heritage of humanity.
