Samba On Your Feet (2006, 52 min) – is a documentary film directed by Eduardo Montes-Bradley, which goes behind the scenes of Samba and Carnival in Rio de Janeiro to reveal the cultural clash that gave birth to a new tradition in South America.
The film screening  will be followed by a Q&A discussion with filmmaker Eduardo Montes-Bradley, via Skype video.

This lively film (view trailer) traces the history of the samba and carnival world in Rio de Janeiro to reveal how the cultural clash of African and European cultures gave birth to a new tradition in Brazil. The historian Haroldo Costa, an expert in carioca folklore, explains how African slaves’ beliefs, gods and music mixed with Spanish Catholic and Indian influences centuries ago to create the remarkable fusion that is Brazilian culture.
