It’s a new year, but the celebration of MoAD’s colorful exhibition, En Mas’, continues! Join us for a special screening of Funkquaria Rising, a documentary short film that looks at the creation, development and artistic vision of the Bay Area based and internationally known Samba school, SambaFunk! Their members, also known as The Funkquarians, have a unique flavor that embraces the African diaspora’s art and culture. The film features a portrait look at the members, live footage from classes, local Carnaval celebrations and exhilarating street theater. It shines a light on the challenges faced by a self-funded group as it works to bring joy to it’s community and beyond.
