Director Guto Barra. (USA/Brazil 2009)
Screening in conjunction with the Reel Brazil Film Festival
A brilliant overview of the incursion of Brazilian music world wide. With dramatic archival footage and original interviews, this fast-paced doc tells in 89 minutes nearly all the history of Brazilian music since the 1940s. Beyond that, the film also describes how such music as samba, bosa nova and Tropicália became an international phenomena. By having such personalities as Brazilian legends Gilberto Gil, Bebel Gilberto, Os Mutantes, Milton Nascimento, and Caetano Veloso in the same film with contemporary music figures such as Devendra Banhart, David Byrne, M.I.A., and Thievery Corporation, it illustrates the link between the generations.
