TROPICÁLIA > Thursday March 21st

Marcelo Machado
Brazil, USA, UK / 2013

This carefully researched film investigates the cultural movement which began in Brazil in the late 1960s as a reaction to the popular music and nationalism of the period. Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Tom Zé (and others) mull over their experience, while magnificent archive footage brings to life the sheer inventiveness and political reach of “Tropicalism”.
