The New Brazilian Cinema, Paperback

The New Brazilian Cinema Paperback

Edited by Lucia Nagib

Description

Lucia Nagib presents a comprehensive critical survey of Brazilian film production since the mid 1990s, which has become known as the "renaissance of Brazilian cinema".

Besides explaining the recent boom, this book elaborates on the new aesthetic tendencies of recent productions, as well as their relationships to earlier traditions of Brazilian cinema.

Internationally acclaimed films, such as "Central Station", "Seven Days in September" and "Orpheus", are analysed alongside daringly experimental works, such as "Chronically Unfeasible", "Starry Sky" and "Perfumed Ball".

Contributors include Carlos Diegues, Robert Stam, Laura Mulvey and Jose Carlos Avellar.
