Master Leopoldina, the fine rose of street wisdom

Associado: Olhar Feminino

The documentary portrays an important character of Rio de Janeiro's Capoeira, Leopoldina, as well as the political and historical scenario in which Capoeira evolved. Master Leopoldina will tell us his own story, bringing all the emotion and reflections of his life teachings to the audience. We're going to listen to the story of his life, from when he was a homeless kid selling candy at the Central do Brasil station, passing through his period as an outlaw when he learned capoeira and became a capoeira master when he met Senzala, the group that lead him to an international career, becoming a Capoeira Star and traveling all over the world. Master Leopoldina is also the Showman who participates at feature films and Samba parades.
