Jungle Freaks: The Cinema Novo Of Joaquim Pedro de Andrade

Joaquim Pedro de Andrade is one of the most important figures of Brazil’s Cinema Novo period and his film Macunaima (Jungle Freaks) helped to set the tone for this style of film that, much like its musical analogue, Tropicalia, gave the psychedelic and countercultural movements that were then sweeping the world a uniquely Brazilian beat. This Thursday night series includes Macunaima (1969), Os Inconfidentes (1972), Guerra Conjugal (1974), and O Homem do Pau Brasil (1982).
