Rabbi Capoeira

Rabbi Capoeira

The surprising story of a one-of-a-kind studio for capoeira and hip-hop, located in the heart of Bnei Brak, the largest ultra-Orthodox city in Israel.

synopsis

How does a shy ultra-Orthodox guy become a world master in Capoeira and how does the ultra-Orthodox community of his city, Bnei Brak, react to the revolution he is determined to bring about?

“Rabbi Capoeira”, the new film by Barak Heymann (“Comrade Dov”, “High Maintenance”) documents the five year long Sisyphean struggle of Miki Hayat, founder of the association” ultra-Orthodox in rhythm”, to connect spirit and body and to bridge between fears and dreams.
