There will be a Panel Discussion after the screening.
Under the supervision of Mestre Jamaika of the Salt Lake school of Capoeira known as Volta Miúda, a group of capoeira students will present a concept dance video that shows the parallel of racial oppression in black and brown communities and police brutality. The video will highlight traditional song, music, and dance, and how the Afro-Brazilian martial art form is used as a tool of resistance to this very day. The concept and vision will inspire us to move forward progressively and to create real spaces for change in our communities.
by Renée Michael, Carla Locatelli, Mestre Jamaika, Allyson Jelitto, Alix Walburn, Tatiana Canettieri, Dinitri Jackson, and Eiby Lobos.
