  5. "I Speak Capoeira" is a feature length documentary. It portraits famous capoeiristas such as mestre Boneco, mestre Peixe and many others.

    The docu has been in the making since 2009 at a painstakingly slow pace, mainly due to the fact that it has been self funded so far. We are currently planning a trip to Sydney, Australia in April 2011, to wrap up principal photography for the documentary.

    This here is only a short preview, the finished documentary will have lots of capoeira footage and will be narrated.

    Please also have a look at our ongoing campaign to get funding for finishing the docu:
