Art of the Real


This annual documentary series includes a tribute the late Brazilian filmmaker Andrea Tonacci, a key figure in Brazil’s udigrudi (“underground”) or marginal cinema movement, who passed away last December. Three rarely screened key films will be presented on 35mm, including Blah Blah Blah and Bang Bang, two short classics of the marginal cinema movement that opposed both Cinema Novo and Brazil’s military government, and Hills of Disorder, which tells the story of an indigenous man who survived the massacre of his tribe through a blend of re-enactments and archival news reports.  Films from Chile, Bolivia, Mexico, and Portugal are also included.

New York: April 20 - May 2 at Lincoln Center.
