A Tribute to Nelson Pereira dos Santos

As the father of Brazil’s socially progressive and aesthetically daring Cinema Novo movement, Nelson Pereira dos Santos attempted to define a Brazilian national cinema through his politically engaged (and populist) body of work. This small retrospective welcomes the artist himself for two events and brings you five of his most important films.

As the father of Brazil’s socially progressive and aesthetically daring Cinema Novo movement, Nelson Pereira dos Santos attempted to define a Brazilian national cinema through his politically engaged (and populist) body of work. This small retrospective welcomes the artist himself for two events and brings you five of his most important films.
