Short Animation + Capoeira Workshop
In conjunction with the screening of short animation Òrun Àiyé - The Creation of the World (see page 5), IberoDocs & "Lusofonias - Oficinas de Português" present a workshop suitable for all ages and for the whole family.
CDO Scotland will introduce to us 'Capoeira', a unique Brazilian cultural art that incorporates diverse movements, music, and physical conditioning. As well as being an amazingly rewarding and fun activity, the practice of Capoeira develops excellent fitness, flexibility, coordination and balance.
On top of that, our friends from The Colony Gourmet will provide some light Brazilian bites to keep energy levels high.
"This masterclass has the objective of condensing and sharing everything learned in almost ten years of work as a scriptwriter and documentary director. The creative processes of real productions will be explained, from which we will be able to reflect on the numerous ways of approaching the documentary genre. A genre determined by our gaze and our commitment to reality." Jorge Laplace
