EN18 Brazilian Film Series
Invalid Image Link Watch five high quality films, chosen from OSU Brazilian Culture and Portuguese film courses, on FOUR SUNDAY EVENINGS. Each film, through a great drama or excellent documentary, illustrates a time and place in Brazilian history. First four films will be chosen from "My Tasty Little Frenchman" (first encounters of natives and Europeans), "Quilombo" (escaped slave community in N.E. backlands), "Bus 174" (social causes of a bus hijacking in Rio in 2000), "Neighboring Sounds" (the past haunts a quiet city neighborhood in contemporary Recife), "Black Orpheus" (transplant of the Greek myth to Carnival in Rio in mid 20th c.), or "Central Station" (cynical woman takes boy on road trip to find his father). On the last Sunday, a double feature will end with "If I Were You 2," a contemporary comedy. There will be a potluck dinner and Brazilian desserts at intermission. Screenings will be preceded by a brief introduction, accompanied by Brazilian treats, and followed by discussion by participants if desired.
