THE MIRACLE OF CANDEAL
El Milagro de Candeal, Spania, 2004, 128 min
Scenariu si regie: Fernando Trueba
VO spaniola / Subtitrari in engleza

Candeal este o zona retrasa, aflata in centrul Salvador-ului (capitala statului Bahia) unde s-a nascut muzicianul Carlinhos Brown, percutionist celebru si lider al trupei bloco-aflo Timbalada. Filmul este un fel de parabola care arata cat de usor si de surprinzator se poate transforma o mahala dezbinata si rupta de realitate intr-o comunitate model, prin puterea muzicii, insuflata de Brown copiilor locali. Filmul prezinta si o imaginea mai de ansamblu – intalnirea dintre Cuba si Brazilia (mai exact Havana si Bahia) si radacinile africane ale celor doua. Aceasta coliziune de culturi si obiceiuri este portretizata de incercarea lui Bebo Valdes, pianist din Cuba, castigator al premiului Grammy, de a-si gasi radacinile africane in Bahia, cu ajutorul lui Brown.

Vino la Centrul Ceh, luni 10 decembrie, uita de frig, isteria goanei dupa cadouri si alte griji, si incalzeste-te cu ritmuri tropicale!

ENGLISH VERSION

Tropical rhythms in Bucharest‘s December? Exactly what we need here. Join us and get away from the pre-Christmas stress, dark days and cold. You will not just enjoy it but also learn more about the power of music and talent.

Candeal is a marginal area in the heart of Salvador, the capital of Bahia and home of musician Carlinhos Brown, famed percussionist and leader of the bloco-afro group Timbalada. The film is a stunning parable of how a notorious slum transformed itself into a model community through the power of music, pushed along by Brown’s commitment to the local youth. The film also reveals a larger picture: the encounter of Cuba and Brazil (specifically Havana and Bahia) and the African roots shared by both, as personified by the Grammy Award-winning Cuban pianist Bebo Valdes, as he visits Brown and searches for his African roots in Salvador de Bahia, the blackest of Brazilian cities. From Academy Award-winning director Fernando Trueba.
