November 5: Double premiere: Fabrik Funk and The Eagle

Double premiere: Fabrik Funk and The Eagle  

Music, dreams and living life to the fullest are some of the themes captured in two new films set to premiere on Nov. 5 at UVic. The UVic anthropology student union, B.o.A.S (Bureau of Anthropology Students), is proud to organize the double premiere of Fabrik Funk and The Eagle.

Both films are short documentaries: Fabrik Funk features a young woman from São Paulo, Brazil, who dreams of becoming a funk MC; The Eagle focuses on a fascinating character, Miguel Aguíla, a Cuban outcast and free spirit expatriated in Victoria.

UVic anthropologist and filmmaker Dr. Alexandrine Boudreault-Fournier, with her two Brazilian colleagues, Dr. Sylvia Caiuby Novaes and Dr. Rose Satiko Gitirana Hikiji, co-directed both documentary films with funding from a FAPESP (São Paulo Research Foundation) grant between UVic and the University of São Paulo.
