Introduction to Brazilian Cinema

Brazilian cinema is best-known internationally for the innovative and influential Cinema Novo movement of the 1960s, for its most recognisable export, Carmen Miranda, and most recently, for the box-office and critical success of CENTRAL STATION (Walter Salles, 1998). Stephanie Dennison will introduce these and many other aspects of the Brazilian cinematic experience, concentrating on films produced after the so-called retomada or rebirth of the industry in 1995.Stephanie Dennison is Programme Director of the MA in World Cinema at the University of LeedsTickets: £3.00 each (ticket includes £1.00 off one film screening in the Brazilian season)
