Pastinha! Uma Vida Pela Capoeira
"Pastinha! Uma Vida Pela Capoeira" is a documentary film presenting one of the most popular capoeira mestres - Vicente Ferreira Pastinha, also known as Mestre Pastinha. In fact, Mestre Pastinha is the creator of Capoeira Angola. Also, he is often called "The Capoeira Angola Guardian" for his work on protecting the traditional capoeira style from the changes introduced by Mestre Bimba and Capoeira Regional. Capoeira Angola has been preserved through the years and is practiced by many capoeiristas nowdays. We should be thankful to what Mestre Pastinha has started.
