Black Orpheus

New York has a rare chance to see Brazilian classic Black Orpheus. Dating from 1959, Black Orpheus retells the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice against the madness of Carnival in Rio de Janeiro. With its magnificent color photography and lively soundtrack, this film brought the infectious bossa nova beat to the United States.
