Poignant story of street (or rather, beach) kids in Bahia
18 April 2000 | by ElianaMSee all my reviews

This mini-series based on the writings of Brazil's most acclaimed writer Jorge Amado (DONA FLOR, TIETA DO AGRESTE) realistically depicts the plight of Bahia's "street" kids. Amado, Bahia's favorite literary son, usually writes about social situations seen during his long life in his home state, and its capital Salvador. This is no exception. The title refers to the captains of the sands, the poverty stricken kids who struggle to survive around Salvador da Bahia's beaches and fishing ports. The series is a faithful cinematic depiction of these kids' sad lives, as first described by Jorge Amado. if you liked PIXOTE or other dramas dealing with Latin American poor urban kids, check this series out.
