Via Brasil

Via Brasil is the Wexner Center’s multidisciplinary initiative focusing on contemporary art and culture in Brazil made possible by a generous grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

Via Brasil Film Series

Brazil’s contributions to the fields of music and dance are known throughout the world. But other than the occasional breakout hit, such as Black Orpheus, Central Station, or City of God, Brazilian cinema rarely receives the level of attention in North America that it deserves. This series offers you an extraordinary opportunity to tour the unique and diverse cinematic and cultural landscape that contributes to the increasing prominence of Brazil on the global (and local) scene.

This festive video rings in our ongoing Via Brasil project with an impressive display of choreographed physicality. Brazilian video artist Pablo Lobato records the great efforts—requiring a tension-filled coordination of strength, timing, and agility—a large team of able-bodied young men give to ring a hulking bell. The narrow, vertical image (created by placing the video projector on its side) mirrors the narrow bell tower of a colonial-era church in the historic town of São João del Rei, in the southeastern state of Minas Gerais. Lobato reminds us of the extraordinary labors and traditions that continue endure even in an era when everything seems to be automated. (5 mins., video)
