This is Rhythmic Uprising's Video Podcast for August, 2008. In it, director Benjamin Watkins makes the much anticipated announcement that the documentary Rhythmic Uprising has officially launched.
He goes on to give a detailed account of the 5 launch screenings that Eliciana Nascimento put on throughout the city of Salvador in Brazil where the film was shot. Screening locations include the historic Teatro Vila Velha which was once the spot where Gilberto Gil and Caetano Veloso launched attacks on the Brazilian dictatorship through polemic plays in the 60s. Today, it's home to Salvador's most provocative theater group, the Bando de Teatro Olodum.
Following screening events take place in each of the communities where the film was shot: Didá in the Pelourinho, ACANNE in Dois de Julho, Beje Ero in Ogunjá, and Circo Picolino in Pituaçu.
