In this Rhythmic Uprising Video Podcast for March, 2008, we take a look at the work California volunteer Kati Greaney did with photography at Beje Ero. We also see how French volunteer Sophie Choupas joined forces with myself and Eric Block to make Acanne's website a reality.
I talk a bit about how I left life in the US capital to edit the first version of the film at Homestead Hills in Southeast Ohio with Greg Swingle. After finishing the first version of the film, we sent out the result to a handful of Rhythmic Uprising community members to get feedback.

In August of 2007, I return to Salvador to work with Eliciana Nascimento and Paulo Rogério Nunes to capture demographic perspectives from local sociologists and historians as well as images of Salvador's most excluded communities. We also visit with Salvador's first Bloco Afro Ilê Aiyê to find images and songs for our film. Finally, Eliciana incorporates her Bahian production company Candace Cine Vídeo.
