Eric Wong Showcases New Documentary on Capoeira

Bay Area Be’chol Lashon member, Eric Wong, recently completed a full-length film documenting an incredible international capoeira event in Brazil last year. Capoeira Sul da Bahia – 3° Encontro Internacional was a week-long event with over 600 participants from 16 countries, and was shot entirely on location in Bahia, Brazil. Eric has been involved with capoeira for over 7 years and his group, Capoeira Sul da Bahia, leads fun energy-filled workshops and performances at many Bay Area Be’chol Lashon events.

Co-producers, Daniel Yoshimi and Thang Truong are excited to spread the word about this Brazilian martial art/dance form and bring it directly to your living room. Watch the trailer at www.capoeirasantabarbara.com/encontro.html.

Developed by African slaves in Brazil as a means to defy their Portuguese slave masters, capoeira incorporates martial arts, dance, music, and acrobatics. Capoeira is a unique and dynamic art filled with self-expression, and a demonstration of the potential of the human body and spirit.
