Directed by João Daniel Tikhomiroff | 2009

With Aílton Carmo, Jéssica Barbosa, Flávio Rocha

The Afro-Brazilian martial art of capoeira gets a thrilling showcase in this alternately poetic and kinetic retelling of the life of Besouro Manganga, a legendary fighter who used his superhuman skills to liberate black workers from brutal white plantation owners in 1920s Brazil. The breathtaking action sequences—set amid the scenic splendor of the Bahia region’s jungles—are courtesy of Kill Bill and Jet Li choreographer Huen Chiu Ku.
