Besouro [2010, Brazil] [Official Slipcase Edition] Feature
In 1920s Brazil, the black slaves suffer under the heel of their oppressors, who forbid them even from engaging in their cultural practices, such as the traditional martial art of capoeira. When the leader of the slave resistance movement is assassinated, his protÈgÈ Besouro must take up his mantle. Using his mastery of capoeira and the supernatural abilities given to him by ancient African deities, Besouro becomes an untouchable mystic, freedom fighter, and symbol of revolt.
