Vidas sêcas

Vidas sêcas

DIRECTOR: NELSON PEREIRA DOS SANTOS
1963 / 100min / DCP
Adapted from author Graciliano Ramos’s Faulkneresque account of two years in the lives of drought-driven refugees (and their dog) in the arid Brazilian northeast, this masterpiece of the Cinema Novo movement not only captured a world of almost feudal repression and poverty but also exposed the dreams, fears, and passions of an enormous rural underclass.
Rio, 40°

Rio, 40°

DIRECTOR: NELSON PEREIRA DOS SANTOS

A sprawling portrait of Rio de Janeiro reminiscent of the later work of Robert Altman that moves from the city’s hillside favelas (slums) to its most fashionable beaches, visiting with samba schools and powerful politicians. Filming almost guerilla-style, dos Santos chronicles with wit, passion and great intelligence the contradictions and the intoxicating energy of a society on the brink of rapid transformation.

Memories of Prison

Memories of Prison

DIRECTOR: NELSON PEREIRA DOS SANTOS
1984 / 188min / DCP
With a brilliant central performance by actor Carlos Vereza, dos Santos transforms Graciliano Ramos’s sprawling, unfinished final work into a challenging meditation on politics and political action in a society rigidly bound by class, racial, and regional differences.
Hunger for Love

Hunger for Love

DIRECTOR: NELSON PEREIRA DOS SANTOS
1968 / 73min / DCP
Against a backdrop of mounting government repression and increasing protests and resistance, dos Santos created one of his most formally innovative works. Set somewhere in the intersection of reality, desire, memory, and fantasy, the film abruptly cuts between locations, time periods, and characters, creating the sense of a world off-course, without direction.
Climax

Climax

DIRECTOR: GASPAR NOé
2018 / 95min / DCP
