Dir. Eryk Rocha, Brazil, 2016, video, 90 min., Portuguese w/English subtitles

A film essay that poetically investigates the eponymous Brazilian film movement, the most prominent in Latin America in the past century, Cinema Novo focuses on the output of its main auteurs: Nelson Pereira do Santos, Glauber Rocha, Leon Hirszman, Joaquim Pedro de Andrade, Ruy Guerra, Cacá Diegues, Walter Lima Jr., and Paulo César Saraceni, among others. "An impressionistic homage to the movement that changed Brazilian film forever." —Variety
