Tomorrow the @FilmLinc celebrates Brazilian culture with screening of 5 shorts by artist from the favelas


5x Favela Now by Ourselves

Brazilian culture is so much more than soccer and Samba, and Brazilian cinema in particular has long gone tragically overlooked.
It’s for this reason that we are excited to partner with ImageNation on Thursday, December 6 for a celebration of the diversity of Brazilian art, aptly titled Celebrate Brazil. This exciting event features a live performance by innovative singer-songwriter Beatriz Azevedo, a exhibition of photos and video work by Andre Cypriano, Cannon Hersey and Nefertiti Strong, and a screening of Cannes Film Festival selection 5x Favela: Now by Ourselves, which comprises five short films written, directed, and acted by promising artists from the favelas of Rio de Janeiro.
Despite the breakout success of City of God in 2002, Brazilian cinema is largely unknown to American audiences. The film—exotic, dangerous, colorful—speaks to a certain image that Brazil holds in the collective imagination, but rather than the “definitive” Brazilian film, it is merely one point of entry to the country’s vast and rich filmography. For experimental cinema, try Cinema Novo, an influential new wave that arose in the 60s and 70s that included notable directors Glauber Rocha, Carlos Diegues and Nelson Pereira dos Santos.

Alejandro A. Riera, of the Chicago Latino Film Festival, on giving Latin American cinema the respect it deserves


As we celebrate our third year with GFI, Global Lens Series Manager Jeremy Quist asked me to reflect on the state of Latin American film distribution in the United States. And the more I thought about the subject, I found myself asking: When will Latin American cinema get the respect it deserves?
Yes, our cinema has an illustrious history that dates back to the silent era and includes such high points as the Golden Age of Mexican Cinema; the rise of Brazil’s Cinema Novo movement in the 50s and 60s; the emergence of post-Revolutionary Cuban cinema in the 60s and 70s; and, more recently, what some critics describe as the “New Argentinean Cinema.” And yet, even when countries such as Ecuador, Bolivia and Venezuela — not exactly film production powerhouses — are coming out with powerfully moving visual (more…)
