an amazing film that centers around capoeria fighting in Brazil. this beautifully shot film also shows the African religious influences of Brazil and is based on the life of an actual capoeria fighter. various Orishas play an important role in the film. an appearance is made by Esu/Eshu and Oxun/Oshun and deals with ancestor veneration as well. in addition, and overall, the film displays the realities of Brazil during the 1920’s. a must-see film.
