In this award winning film, three world renowned masters tell of the blood and treachery of Capoeira in its early days after slavery. A young man gets off the ghetto streets of Salvador Brazil and redeems his life by teaching Capoeira to other troubled youths. In their stories the surprising history and essential truth of Capoeira as a modern self defense art form is revealed.
Authentically representing the roots of Capoeira
I've been waiting for this film to come to iTunes for awhile! Winner of best documentary at Philadelphia International Film Fest - Fly Away Beetle shares the roots of Capoeira from it's home - Salvador Brazil. Tracing it's origins in slavery to todays community empowerment, it has a cinematic style that evokes authenticity - and a gritty realism from the interviews with old Mestre's to the youth of today.
