Samba Cine Club @ Festa Junina
We are celebrating our famous “Festa Junina”- literally June’s Party (yes, a little late) or also St John’s winter party with ABRISA this Saturday 2nd.
Abrisa is the great Brazilian community group that organises this party every year. There will be lots of great food and entertainment for families (kids party starts at 4PM).
And we will be screening a beautiful documentary called Born to be Blind (A Pessoa é para o que nasce) – Roberto Berliner and Leonardo Domingues (2003).
It is the story of three blind sisters, linked by this extraordinary twist of fate, who spend their lives singing and playing ganzá for spare change on the streets and in the street markets of poverty stricken northeast Brazil.Their immersing story, that not without humor, depicts a complex tale of love and death, anguish and art.
After the film, we have special forro bands Forro de Chinelo (at 8PM) and Zabumba (at 10PM). Also featuring. Dj Guido Bambaataa & Junior DJ.St John’s Party Come along and have fun.
