On Sunday March 27th, MoveOn.org Queens Council members held their monthly Movie Night by viewing "Rythmic Uprising." at Terraza 7 Train Cafe in Jackson Heights (40-19 Gleane Street, Elmhurst, NY 11373(718) 803-9602)... On hand at the event was one of the film's collaborators, Keiko Tamura...

Rhythmic Uprising is a documentary project that seeks to empower a movement of artists who are using Afro-Brazilian traditions to elevate the quality of life for children in the culturally rich region of Bahia, Brazil.

After the movie, Keiko spoke to the attendees about the making and financing of the film and took many questions from MoveOn members...



The documentary clearly shows that social change can be attained peacefully thru music and the arts...
