    • Synopsis
    • “The Samba within me” is a documentary set in the Mangueira Hill (Morro da Mangueira), in Rio de Janeiro, during the
      pre-carnival period. The starting point is the Estação Primeira de Mangueira’ samba court, the place where the
      director Georgia Guerra-Peixe reencounters her own history. In the beginning of the documentary, the director tells
      us what carnival has always meant to her and to her family. From the court, she starts her way up to the Mangueira’s
      Hill for the rst time, driven by her desire to go beyond the samba “If I could silence a Samba school…”. Her particular
      look leads to this “let yourself ” go over the hill; a natural walk that acquires melancholic variations and dierent
      rhythmic cadences, resulting in a composition that could be called the samba of a glance. Beyond the court lies the
      samba of Georgia Guerra-Peixe, a samba that is a way of being, of living and also, a way of singing and dancing.
