This is a documentary about capoeira, a brazilian martial art. It is made by talking to the teachers of capoeira in my life and filming the capoeira events that happened around the north east. This is the short form version and will be used to raise money to get down to Brazil to film the old guard of mestres and create a longer more comprehensive documentary. You can learn more and contribute to the production on IndieGogo.
Last Wednesday, we hosted over 50 people at our Summer Party at Leftfield NYC. The fundraiser party featured an impromptu drum circle and an intro capoeira class (photos below). We raised over $1000 dollars towards our $18,000 fundraising goal to renovate our new space. Special thanks to all of you who attended, helped out, and contributed to the successful event.
While the festivities have ended, the campaign continues. We have 60 hours left to go on our IndieGogo fundraising campaign. If you have pledged already, thank you so much. If you have a minute, please share our campaign with your friends and family. If you haven't yet pledged, we appreciate any contribution you can make. Every little bit counts to help us renovate our new space and expand our capoeira leadership programs for young people in NYC (learn more).
If you prefer paper, you can print out this donation letter and form and mail it back with your contribution.
Thank you so much for your continued support of Afro Brazil Arts in our mission to light the fire of capoeira for thousands of NYC youth every year.
