This Week in Cinema Tropical, March 2-9
This week is a strong week for Brazilian cinema in New York City.
Both Film at Lincoln Center and the IFC Center will be home to the U.S. theatrical release of Kleber Mendonça Filho and Juliano Dornelles’ Bacurau—winner of the Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival.
Also from Brazil, we get Glauber Rocha’s political classic Antonio Das Mortes, screening at BAM Rose Cinema on Sunday as part of their screening series, ‘Rise up!: Portraits of Resistance.’ Two more bold and provocative Brazilian classics will also be shown this week: Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands—starring Bacurau‘s Sônia Braga in one of her breakout roles—will hit the silver screen at Quad Cinema and Carlos Diegues‘ Xica da Silva at The Museum of Modern Art, both tomorrow, Tuesday.
Finally, join us at Anthology Film Archives next Monday for another installment of our on-going series ‘If You Can Screen It There: Premiering Contemporary Latin American Cinema.’ This time, we’re pleased to bring to the city the U.S. premiere of Argentine director Hugo Santiago‘s The Sky of the Centaur—his last film, written in collaboration with La Flor‘s Mariano Llinás.
