Seu filho adotivo, Mestre Roxinho, atravessou o oceano para chegar a Austrália, onde luta pela dignidade de seu pai e da Capoeira Angola.

My Father, My Master – a documentary on Capoeira Angola. Trailer screens at the Sydney Latin American Film Festival

CHAUVEL CINEMA – 10 MARCH – 6:30pm – screening of 7′ trailer + filmmaker intro

SYNOPSIS – watch 3′ trailer

My Father, My Master explores the depths of a father-son, master-disciple relationship.
Although 65 year-old Master Virgilio belongs to one of the most traditional lineages of Capoeira Angola and has lead a weekly practice for almost 50 years, foreign interest in Capoeira took most of his students abroad and he is losing the drive to continue. His adoptive son Master Roxinho crosses the oceans to Australia and fights for the dignity of his father and their shared practice: Capoeira Angola.

CAPOEIRA – more on the history of Capoeira Angola

Capoeira is fight within a dance, a ritual of resistance created in the 18th century by African slaves in Brazil. The music of Capoeira draws on the history and religions of Africa – an expression of physical and spiritual survival. The two main styles of Capoeira are Regional and Angola. Capoeira Angola is the practice that connects the two main characters of our story.

SUPPORT THE PROJECT (tax deductible)- details

MY FATHER, MY MASTER is a self-funded documentary shot with the support of companies, friends and volunteers. There has been no finance or grants from any kind directed to the project. I have invested my savings into the shooting of 60 hours of footage.

Now, in order to finalize this film I will need at least two months full time work – this means I can’t work for money. Your support is essential to the continuation of this project. Supporters will be credited in the documentary and a copy of the final film will be posted to them.

Once post-production is concluded and the supporting copies posted, a portion of any future sales will go towards the Capoeira Angola Cultural Centre.

Recebi este mail do Mestre Jeronimo, e logo percebi que o profissional em questão era aluno do Mestre Peixe Crú, Adadá – SP (Butantã), gingo contigo mestre Jeronimo… conheci e convivi com o Peixe Crú nos anos 90, epoca de transição do mestre para o Grupo Abadá… Quando eu era aluno da Casa de Capoeira Malungos onde o Peixe exercia um belo trabalho… Fica aqui os meus sinceros votos de sucesso ao Fabiano e um grande axé ao Mestre Peixe Crú e sua familia…

*we have now in Sydney a new Capoeira school — Abada Capoeira
*temos em Sydney + um profissional trabalhando pra evoluir a Capoeira, do grupo Abada
 
Yesterday, January 26, in AU the government officialises a date to commemorate part of what this nation is about, regarding it’s culture and people from various parts of the world living along with the original inhabitants of this land — Aborigine people, as they were named by the English people.
 
Ontem, 26 de janeiro, na Australia o governo oficializa esta data pra que seja celebrado uma parte do que a nacao representa, no tocante as varias racas e culturas que aqui vivem com os que foram denominados de ‘aborigene’ pelos europeus ingleses.
 
Mestre JC e a JC’S Capoeira Angola School, dividimos uma Roda na praia de Dee Why, no norte de Sydney com o capoeirista profissional Fabiano (cipoh) do grupo Abada, que comecou a dar aulas para a comunidade da AU. *(Fabiano eh graduado do Mestre Peixe Cru, em SP).
 
We JC’S, Capoeira Angola School, are happy to share a Roda de Capoeira with the professional (teacher) Fabiano, known as ‘cipoh’, from the Abada group in Sao Paulo (Mestre Peixe Cru) now living in Dee Why and teaching Capoeira to the local community in Dee Why Beach.
 
I was in BR last year when Fabiano came to our traditional Sunday Roda and shared his Capoeira with our community and JC’S students, showing respect an joy to Capoeira. This is an attitude that I consider to exalt, no matter what "flag" capoeiristas take to promote their origin (mestre) and work (group, federation, etc). I welcomed ‘cipoh’ and gave him the best welcome Capoeira can offer to those that respect an promote their Capoeira with respect. Welcome to AU and Sydney Fabiano and Abada Capoeira School!!
 
Eu tava vadiando uns meses no BR ano passado quando me falaram que o Fabiano tinha vindo dividir um jogo com meus alunos e a comunidade na nossa Roda tradicional *(tem 18 anos que eu mantenho esta Roda na praia de Bondi Beach). Nao so mostrou que tem talento pra gingar na Capoeira Angola como deu licao de respeito ao proximo numa Roda na Rua. Eu aprecio e valorizo este tipo de atitude e da mesma forma divido o jogo, pra exaltar nossa arte e cultura. Bem vindo pra AU capoeirista ‘cipoh’; prosperidade pro trabalho que vai fazer com a Capoeira em nome do grupo Abada e da cultura do povo do BR!!
 
A Roda foi regado no dende e o povo elegeu a Capoeira pro podium do sucesso
neste dia de celebracao que aqui se comemorou.
 
Our Roda was a success and our community enjoyed Capuera along with the
celebrations that we had to this date.
 
My ‘obrigado’ to all that came to support Capoeira to this occasion. Fabiano and Rosinha (his girl friend also from Abada school in SP) thanks for the day… an authentic AU day.  Iee viva a Capoeira camara!
 
Muito obrigado a todos que participaram na Roda pra exaltar a Capoeira e a cultura do povo do BR neste dia de celebracao do povo australiano. E em especial pro fabiano e a rosinha que organizaram a Roda e a festa que rolou em seguida regada no baiao e MPB.
 
Sarava pra AU e pra cultura e o povo do BR!!!
