2- Roda de Rua - Camdem Lock Street Roda @ Camden Town


Arcola Theatre

Besouro Preto
Award-winning film by Salim Rollins

September 4th, 2008 - 8:30pm @ Arcola Theatre
Kabula Capoeira Class from 7 to 8:30pm


In the northeastern state of Bahia, Brazil lies a region of fertile lands spread around the city of Salvador, called the Reconcavo. During slavery, the area was recognized for its high yields of sugarcane. From the small town of Santo Amaro, located in Bahia's Reconcavo, comes the legend of a man steeped in African spiritual tradition, a Capoeirista (practitioner of the movement/martial art Capoeira) who took it upon himself to challenge those who abused their power. Some say he was noble, others a troublemaker who disrespected the powers of authority.

There is no doubt that Besouro Preto (Black Beetle) was a historic figure in Bahia's Reconcovo. But where does the historic figure end and the myth begin?

Besouro Preto looks deeply into the mysterious world of Capoeira, it's historic evolution from Africa to Brazil, its spiritual/religious traditions, its philosophy and then into the life of one of its biggest enigmas: Besouro Preto.
