“The urge for freedom is timeless.
Out of necessity we are thrown into the fight.
Within the fight, some learn to dance.”

“Can a ritual born out of slavery become a modern day movement?”

“Capoeira, comprised of stylized dance and ritual combat takes its cue from the sacred music of the berimbau. Born from slavery and reborn on the modern streets of Brazil, Capoeira proceeds from the timeless urge for freedom. With stunning cinematography this feature length documentary film from BlueDot captures the ballet-like beauty of Capoeira while also exploring the history, myth and symbolism behind its graceful moves.”
