In this Video Podcast we cover our brief but productive filming period in September. Rhythmic Uprising director Benjamin Watkins joins forces with Paulo Rogério Nunes from the Instituto de Mídia Étnica and videographer and hip hop activist Eliciana Liz to film a long list of inspiring Bahian community leaders about the differences they're making. We filmed Mariana, Viviam and Adriane from DiDá; Mario, Anativo, and Rejane from Bejé Erô; Antonio Marcus and several of his students from Circo Picolino; Mestre René and his daughter Chris from ACANNE; as well as Vanda Machado and Arany Santana who are both influential educators in Salvador who stress the importance of incorporating African heritage into the development of youth in the region.
