2012 | Brazil

In the late 1960s, Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Os Mutantes, and Tom Zé were creating the soundtrack to the artistic movement that sent shockwaves through Brazilian culture. Combining recently recovered archival material and encounters with these musicians and other icons of the movement, Tropicália shines a contemporary light on this vital moment in the history of the country—and of popular music around the world. A rare and thrilling document of the brilliant sparks that fly when art, culture, and politics collide.

This screening will be followed by the 2012 Margaret Mead Filmmaker Award Ceremony and a Brazilian Dance party with Maracutu NY and Nation Beat in the Wallach Orientation Center.

Co-presented by Cinema Tropical
