"Capoeira is all that is good in life"
REVIEW: 5 OUT OF 5 STARS
Slums, Drums and Capoeira takes you on a unique journey of discovery into this ancient art form. From its origins in Salvador to Rio's most notorius slum, we see the spirit of Capoeira alive in modern Brazil.
Rocinha - The largest slum in Rio de Janeiro, where the narrow alleys are stained with the blood of drug trafficking. Here we meet Tiane, a gifted young Capoeirista who lost her brother to the violence. We follow her journey as she fights to establish a Capoeira school in the slum to provide the kids with a different path.
Their story is interwoven with that of the old masters from Salavdor, the home of Capoeira. With rare footage of Mestre Bimba and Mestre Pastinha (the fathers of modern day Capoeira) and with interviews from today's most respected masters (Mestres Curio, Nenel, Bamba, Moraes, Bola Sete and many more), Slums, Drums and Capoeira captures the true essence of Capoeira in today's Brazil.
