Falando de Marcelo - o Mestre Peixinho

<p> When I started <strong>CAPOEIRA</strong> I didn't know it would project myself in this way. It is however the<strong> tale of these boys that trained in a terrasse</strong> in the South Zone of Rio de Janeiro that made me stay and get to know deeper this art.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Senzala_50_anos-1412697772" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/126060/senzala_50_anos-1412697772.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> I heard a lot about a certain <em><strong>Mestre Peixinho</strong></em>. One day I met Mestre Peixinho, a little man with long hair and small glasses. This little guy blew me away by his presence, his knowledge, his way of being in life, his understanding of capoeira.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="304" src="//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/media.html?src=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fembed%2Fro3vS6eQUSQ%3Fwmode%3Dopaque%26feature%3Doembed&amp;wmode=opaque&amp;url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3Dro3vS6eQUSQ&amp;image=http%3A%2F%2Fi.ytimg.com%2Fvi%2Fro3vS6eQUSQ%2Fhqdefault.jpg&amp;key=ff2702755d9749cda571c6d6c2f3eb46&amp;type=text%2Fhtml&amp;schema=youtube" width="540"></iframe></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Mestre Peixinho died in 2011</strong>. Capoeira lost a great exponent of his art, his family lost a family member, his wife lost her husband and their daughter lost her father. One day I realized that not many of the students in the group know who he was or very little. I made this <strong>more than two hours documentary</strong> to present <em>him</em> to those who don't know him, to honor him, to keep him in our memories.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Peixinho_menu_capitulos-1412862117" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/126722/Peixinho_Menu_Capitulos-1412862117.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>The DVD consists on 12 chapters</strong>, the introduction to the DVD tells in summary the history of the formation of this group of young men that have created a group has now 50 years old.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Recto_dvd-1412697866" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/126062/Recto_DVD-1412697866.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> There are interviews with Mestres Toni Vargas, Ramos, Deco, Abutre, Feijão, Nénel (son of Mestre Bimba), Itapuan, Marrom, Malzibier, Arruda, Contramestre Renata and family members such as his mother D.

Allocation of funds

<p> I'm not going to lie. I have to pay off some debts that I had to do to make this DVD, such as my trip to Brazil, to places in Brazil, Food and Housing. I asked for money and used the little I had.</p> <p>  </p> <p> I have to pay of 1500€ to a friend that financed my trip and the other 500€ finance the production house I had to ask for professional help to finish off the DVD and of course the DVD reproductions. The rest I've payed from my own pocket and I'm pround of it because Mestre Peixinho deserves it.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>The money collect is going in the production of this already edited, that only needs your help to come out, 100 copies of the DVD.</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> You will helping me to honour this man my own way. I don't wish to be rich with the making of this DVD. I just want it to be out and cover my travelling expenses. If however my collect goes over the objective this will fuel future copies of this DVD and when this is done if there is still some money left I plan on investing in a new documentary project about the old masters that are still living so that they are registered in some way and some day new generations of capoeiristas can know them too.</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <a href="https://www.facebook.com/Falando.de.Marcelo" target="_blank">https://www.facebook.com/Falando.de.Marcelo</a></p>
