‘Guerra-Peixe and her camera perform a dance of their own, discovering the untold stories behind the samba’s rhythm’ - HotDocs, Canada

“One only needs to watch The Samba Within Me for five minutes to see that this neighborhood is brimming with rich, glowing life, and that Carnival wouldn’t exist without communities like Mangueira. This documentary is about the Mangueira Samba School neighborhood, its residents, and the larger than life personalities who love Samba, and have played a pivotal role in Mangueira’s standing as one of the top Samba schools in Rio.” - Russell Slater, Rio Times.
