O Brazil: Contemporary Brazilian Cinema

Friday, May 8 - Friday, Jun 19, 2015

O Brazil continues witha slate of recent films about musicbut not the kind you would expect from Brazil. Whether as a source of inspiration for the story, such as the music by Legiao Urbana in Brazilian Western; or a part of the everyday soundtrack in a film about everyday life (She Comes Back on Thursday); or as a vehicle for profound change, such as the Brazilian punk in After the Rain; music is ever-present and profoundly bound to narrative in these films.

Organized by guest curator Marcela Goglio, and presented in collaboration with Cinema Tropical
