Brazil Day at Cinema Village

December 8, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The films in ADIFF 2019’s Brazil Program present the work of filmmakers who have paid attention to various aspects of life and resistance in Brazil over several centuries. Quilombo by Carlos Diegues, a classic epic drama set in Brazil in the 1640s, celebrates African resistance against slavery.

Three other films explore the state of affairs in Brazil today. Your Turn / Espero tua (re)volta by Eliza Capai and Renato Manganello follows young people fighting against injustice in Brazilian schools and streets today; Blackn3ss by Diego Paulino is an afro-futurist exploration of blackness and queerness in Brazil, and Baobab Flowers by Gabriela Watson-Burkett is a documentary that explores education inequality as a global issue in black communities.

Marighella by Wagner Moura, set in 1969, is a new epic action drama based on the life of Afro-Brazilian politician and guerrilla fighter Carlos Marighella.

Join us for ADIFF’s Spotlight on Brazil Day at Cinema Village on Sunday, Dec. 8 for an entire day of screenings and discussions about Brazil yesterday and today and check the program for repeat screenings of some of the films during the festival.
