O Brasil: Contemporary Brazilian Cinema

Saturday, Nov 14 — Saturday, Dec 12, 2015

This season’s edition of O Brasil includes a small but diverse selection of recent award-winning independent films from the production powerhouse that is Brazil today: the New York premiere of Last Conversations, master Eduardo Coutinho’s last documentary, about teen life, finished posthumously; the fiction feature Absence, a festival favorite from Chico Teixeira; and Swirl, the otherworldly, semi-documentary debut film by Clarissa Campolina ​and ​Helvécio Marins, Jr.

Organized by guest curator Marcela Goglio. Presented in collaboration with Cinema Tropical, and with partial support from the Consulate General of Brazil in New York.
